If you can come up with a D/D and support it with pertinent negatives or positives, you'll get the points. The order should be in the decreasing order of likelihood, for eg RLQ pain -
1) Acute Appendicits 2) Ruptured Ectopic Pregnancy 3) Ovarian Torsion

If you list your differentials from most likely to least likely you will get the most marks but if you list them in random order that's OK and you still pass that won't be a reason for failure.
