Listening Are these enough mistakes to fail!

Failed my step 2 cs (CIS part) , now i'm trying to figure out why i failed i m not sure if these mistakes re enough , i'm afraid that there might be a blind spot i'm not aware of .
so my mistakes were mainly and i could say only these:

*wearing my gloves and never get them off in all encounters ,i even shook hands with the gloves on before i leave in 1 or 2 encounters !!

*forget to pull the leg rest of the bed many times may be in 6 encounters

* forgot to counsel for smoking in one patient

* i called the patients name may be twice instead of 3-4 times

*showed empathy but may be wasn't enough not sure

otherwise i did everything else like knocking ,introducing myself , showed empathy as much as i could , counselled on everything , never missed any closure always summarized ,used transition sentences , asked permission before PE , explaining the next step ......

i'm wondering is this enough mistakes to fail i hope yes ! i'm too afraid to fail next time of things not aware of

I am very sorry for your result I hope you do the exam again and pass

What do you mean by this point??!!!!

I think your biggest mistake was wearing the same gloves all the time because they must be afraid that you transfer diseases between the patients

So either you wash your hands in each encounter or you wear gloves at the beginning of exam of each encounter and remove them and discard them at the end of exam in each encounter
