Listening PASSED CS! Do PD only look to see Pass/Fail on CS?

Hello everyone!

My question is do Program Directors look only look to see if the candidate PASSED or FAILED on the Step CS or do they also look at the individual performance on the 3 exam components?

Only pass/fail.

Congrats.

In reality, a pass in this test means absolutely nothing. The only benefit of passing this test is not having the words "fail" printed on there.

Apparently it's huge if you fail it, but tiny if you actually pass it.
