Unhappy Screwed Up Few Cases

hello guys
i gave my cs a few days back
i am worried about my exam...i believe i screwed up a few cases...
my 1st case i got completely confused and messed up the differentials...i missed the most obvious differential; however my history and PE were ok....
in another case i again wrote one differential which was completely not relevant and the positive finding to correlate the differential was wrong...
also i was unable to finish writing about the immunisation and dvpt history in the paeds case which were supposedly normal
rest of my cases were ok...i might have missed some points in pn or have had to fasten the closure or use some inappropriate abbreviations....but generally the rest of the cases were ok....

do u guys think i will be able to pass in-spite of these mistakes??

No one really knows for sure.

That being said, please give more details, and we can try to figure it out based on other experiences we have heard. Your explanation is rather vague.

NO ONE can tell you if you will pass!
Everyone here posts a thread saying "these were my mistakes... will I pass?"
there is NO ONE in this forum who can tell you if you will pass.
No one knows how the exam is scored.
No one knows what exactly you did in your exam - you might over- or underestimate yourself! So for example you are very good at doing exams but very competitive, and tell us you did not do a very good exam when in fact it might be much better than others who think their exam was good.
I hope you understand what I mean.
So, the only thing there is to do is wait for your results - I know it is brutal, as it takes so much time. Just try to focus on something else.
Right now there is nothing you can do, whether you have passed or failed.

Your description is still too vague. Its very hard to guess how someone did.

But based on your vague description, it is literally impossible to know.

We will all be doctors (or are doctors already) and will have to concentrate on different things under extreme stress sometimes. So get over your CS and concentrate on CK - just don't think about it. I am sorry, but everyone else can do it and so can you. None of us can help, except if it helps you when someone here tells you "yes you will pass - 100%". Your odds are still exactly the same whether someone here tells you they are absolutely sure you will pass or not. I am sorry that we cannot predict the future. You will have to wait and see. I wish you all the best and I really hope you will pass. Try to concentrate on your CK prep now.
