Question Blunders in my CS Exam

i took the cs in june ,still awaiting results.am so scared.my mistakes were:
-Ran out of time and did not discuss diagnosis and workup and counselling for 1 case.
-forgot to mention pelvic exam in pn and to patient in one case.
-forgot to ask sexual history in a case where i thought retrospectively it was relevant.
-could not figure out the differential diagnosis and hence workup for a vague case.
rest all was okay i suppose
can anyone please tell me if i can pass cs inspite of these blunders?am really tensed.thanks

ur first error will hurt your CIS score.

ur last error will hurt your ICE score.

If these are your only errors, then you should be alright and pass. However, there is a chance that you made more errors than you realize. Try to hang in there. It will be a long two months. I'm desperately waiting for CS results too.

Remember that the CS is actually 3 exams in one. you must pass ICE, CIS, and SEP at the same time. your errors seem to be spread out nicely, so you probably wont lose enough in one category to make you fail the whole exam.

I on the other hand have multiple horrible errors in ICE, so I'm screwed. Hang in there pal. You'll be ok.
