Default My CS done on Feb18 & now super worried !

hello...i took my cs yesterday at LA.
good center & lovely SPs.
But i screwed up alot !
Here are my mistakes...
1.in respiratory & heart mixed case, i forget to Percuss lungs & TVF. JUz auscultate the heart & lung, palpate PMI & chest wall tenderness & neck -lymph nodes.
2. 5times in all 12 cases- the patient has to ask me again about my question. worried for SEP.
3. missed to rule out very potential DDX in 2 cases. major Screwed up!
4. All SPs has 2 questions to ask. in 2 cases, i run out time during managing the 2nd challenging question.
5. try to listen Ht in 2 positions in CVS cases & check JVP & carotid. But not LEG SWELLING & Pulses !
Here are what I done good ( i think )...
1. empathize the SPs at least 5 times ( in CC, family passed away,everytime SPs told a bad new )
2. ask every SPs, " do u understand what i have told u about Dx & tests? " They always say Yes! But i don't ask " how is this effecting ur life? " because most are not chronic problems.
3. Finished all pt notes in time & i can put complete work up plans.
4. well... one female pt has pretty blue eyes & i comment it ( i m not acting or make it up, i really like her eyes ) , SPs seems happy the whole encounter.

I m now super worried about ICE. my SEP is medium & CIS seems ok.
I want to summarize,do closure & manage the challenges, so my PE are so short. Notes are not bad but not good either.
I will appreciate any advices . I really want to pass & i studied harder for CS than step 1... I think i m the crazy one

Everyone thinks they failed even if they did amazing. Try not to worry too much. I felt the same way after the exam and my results showed that I did way better than I expected.

If you go a little bit over this forum or the Student Doctor Network one, you will see that it is pretty common to feel this way and still pass. They judge your overall performance, so some mistakes are ok, and the time frame is so short, it's kind of understandable... but nobody knows really how they score this stuff, and I'm pretty sure I'll feel the same in one week. I kind of think it's good to fear to screwed up, better than to be overly confident of passing...Try to relax and enjoy whatever you are doing in the couple of weeks of waiting the results. Hope you pass! Keep us updated!

I know how u feel, I took my test on Feb 10th and I am totally stressed out right now thinking about all the mistakes I made. Everyone who I have talked with says that it is much better to feel stressed than overconfident, so maybe it is good that you feel this way. I have a friend who felt the same way and her results were really good. Good luck and keep moving forward while your results are back!
