Question Which 2 cases are not graded?

I've read in first aid and other places that we are graded for 10 cases and 2 cases are dropped. So, are the 2 worst cases dropped or do they decide beforehand which cases won't be counted?
I've tried searching for it but haven't found the answer. Anyone got a clue?

HI encore,
I don't think anybody knows the answer to this question; just as we don't know which questions were not considered in our step 2ck exam (called ' experimental' I've heard). So, it's just a matter of doing well in all 12 cases in CS.

Just like what Triquetrum told you.

There two cases that are not graded are not disclosed (you don't know them) and they are not the two worse cases you have done.
