Unhappy worried about my mistakes in cs...feedback please.

Hi all I am really worried about my step 2 CS performance.
I took my exam at LA
1. I screwed up my 1 st case and did not complete my closure
2. Did not counsel to quit smoking for two cases
3. Did not perform mini mental exam for a depression case but mentioned mental status exam in PN investigation part.
4. was not able to answer a challenging question coz did not understand wat she said.
5. my SP did not look happy when i told him my DD, he said I am trying to scare him.
6. did not do well on a case coz the DD which I had in my mind did not match with the patients symptoms.
completed my patients notes on time but never got time to recheck for mistakes.
otherwise no problem with communication except one or two here and there
performed physical examination in an orderly fashion, explained why I am doing the examination.
did the closure well for most of the cases.


please give me ur feedback
I am very nervous and stressed out
thanks in advance.

just want to comment about no.3& 5
3- no need for mini mental exam for depression case (not mentioned in all 3 suspected cases in fa)
5- this is normal sp tried to put you in stress situation to see how you act and how you are confident so don't worry about these, the others mistakes according to me not really will affect on total performance if you did everything else good.
Best of luck
