Unhappy Am I going to fail?

hello guys,

I studied for 1 month and in the last 2 weeks I practiced with a friend

this is my experience :

at the of the exam it was stressful

my mistakes:
1. forgot to wear gloves in 1 station
2. when i summarized the history for the patient , i got things wrong and then corrected.
3. forgot to counsel about alcohol and smoking in many stations.
4. one of the SPs almost laughed at me ( it was in ER setting)
5. forgot to ask many questions to ask .


I don't know guys , is that enough to fail ??

thanks step taker,

i will post all the mistakes and the things the i did right


1st mistakes:

1. maybe 3 cases didnt know the differentials
2. didnt wash or wear gloves in 1 case
3. totally forgot about asking cage or alcohol counseling
4. some cases got incorrect information when i summarized
5. 3-4 cases didnt ask focused questions about his main disease (bcz i figured out late in the encounter)
6. all female pts whether they were young or old i addressed them as MS.
7. I don't think my PNs were complete in all cases although didnt leave any section blank
8. one of the patients smiled when she asked me (why are you asking these Q .. she meant the social history Qs ....and i just said it could be related to your illness)
9. forgot about the leg rest in many encounters
10. asked some pts Qs when I was examining them

my positives( i guess):
1. introduced, smiled , empathized, asked permission for anything.
2. answered all Qs they have
3. did closures in all cases + p/e
4. maintained an eye contact with them
5. told about confidentiality

what do you think guys ???

waiting for your feedback
