Default Sorry to hear about it

It seems like you have problems with data gathering and the patient note section cause the ICE contains these 2 parts as far as I know. Since you say you were ready and practiced the FA cases twice it's a bit odd that your performance in ICE wasn't sufficient. Anyway don't be discouraged keep on working and practice with one who has passed the exam and also emphasize on the patient note. I know it's tough to fail after being prepared but you can do it, just some tips from friends who passed and some extra preparation and you will be good the next time.

Good Luck

I think you did in an old way in cs. I gave cs too and passed. The change in new cs is not about checklist but to use your mind to find out. What can be the different dd in each case? So, your questions need to be directed that way...fa is good to give you a outlook but now new cs does not correlate with this pattern.
I would advise you rather than trying to ask every single component on checklist try to ask every single dd you will write to support your dd...moreover, write everything in patient notes, even your allergies, past hosp, sexual history is your scores...so don't miss anything in Pam hug Foss...good luck...I hope you will do great next time and have confidence in you.

@mattjosef: hi sorry to know about ur result. Its really hard to see that result after practice. Ur other component are above borderline to high so ur practice with sp is good there. Your ice component which means ur patient note was not good. have u given exam in new format or old format typing??
Have u practiced typing under time before exam?? Did u remember ur mistakes in patient notes?? Have u got all dds , i mean ur patient note was complete in exam??..check all these mistakes and start again...this time practice good with patient notes with time...u can do it..
