Question How many cases do we need to diagnose to pass?

hi there

so in order to pass CS do we have to get all the cases correct?
I mean do we have to reach the DX for all 12 cases?

No, you don't have to get ANY diagnosis correct as long you can get 3 DD with evidence to support them from History & Physical exam.
