Unhappy They held me back at Exam Exit

Hello, right now I'm too paranoid to say when or where I did CS, days, weeks, months ago... My question is: After the end of the exam they asked me to stay and wait in the hallway where the exam took place, the other doctors were leaving already. I thought "this can't be anything good, but I did nothing wrong". Only in one case the bell rang on me but I was ending my closure and got out a second after. During another case while writing the note , a proctor told me something but i don't know what, spoke too fast and my mind was completely on the note.

Five minutes or so later they told me "you can leave now, thanks for choosing ----- center"

Any thoughts on what happened?

Thank you all very much

If you were considered to be in irregular behavior they should have clearly informed you about that and they should have made you signed a paper.

Since they did not do that, then you are good.

Maybe they were discussing if they should label you as irregular behavior but then they decided not to do so, maybe they were reviewing the recorded videos of your performance to make sure everything was alright.

Well did they actually say anything to you after the exam!!??? or somebody asked you to fill up a form?

No right! then chill. Nothing happened. It had happened to a friend too. Usually no action is taken

Thank you all so much for your input, knowing that it happened to someone else makes me feel better.

No, they didn't tell me anything after the exam besides the "please go to the hallway and wait a moment". No filling of forms either.

Ok, maybe I will pass somehow, but in order to chillax and study for CK I'm embracing the idea that I didn't pass and move on. I want to go for a pathology residency, maybe they don't care the same for a first attempt on CS as in other residencies.
