Default Anxiety about passing/failing (yes another one of those posts )

So I took my test on 12th feb in Atlanta .
After the test I didn't really feel as though I RADICALLY messed something up (like being clueless) . Things which make me nervous are (this is the stuff I know for sure I messed up )
- so in one of the cases we had 2 diagnosis which were valid (I got the top diagnosis , missed the 2nd diagnosis totally ) my second diagnosis is still valid and supported but probably should've been the 3rd one .
-one case I knew where the issue was but just that being very specific needed findings and they were all negative so I naively put it as (ligament injury of a body part ) I know you can't put stuff like that on your diagnosis ?
-one case the SP was just probably trained to deny everything (got the main diagnosis but couldn't dig anything out ! So while closing when I told her about my second diagnosis she opposed and contradicted what I said right away! Froze for a good 10-20 seconds )

Hypercritical mode
(Might have missed counseling partially in 1-2 cases )


Positives (Atleast what I feel so )
-empathy on point
-strong intro and patient comfort
-always washed hands
-finished all patient notes on time
-everything was structured so i didn't really have to fling questions randomly
-English was not really an issue
-Asked patient if the plan was agreeable to them , if they have any questions or concerns for me

Now I walked out feeling I have done enough to pass , but maybe this is one of those panic moments when I feel I will flunk !!
Feedback is appreciated ?
Thank you !
