Default Will I pass?

Hello everyone.

I just did my CS today. Very worried because I made allot of minor mistakes , but on top of that I made 2 major mistakes.

1) I diddnt write Family history, Past surgical history and Obs and gyn history in 3 of the patient notes. I was running out of time for the note and thought it was irrelavant because it was negative.

2) diddnt ask about fever in a case. So i screwed up the differential because of that.

Apart from that I made many mistakes in the patient note while writing the physical examination. But the PE findings where negative.

Please be kind enough to give me your opinions as I am very worried.

Thank you.

1) if its not relevant, then dont worry you will be ok
2) one case wont make a difference, and u probbly got other good diagnoses

Thank for your reply.

I took it in LA. I think you need to know the common symptoms from First Aid. Both the mini cases and the practice cases. But also practice the Kaplan CS book too.(Core Cases). Its very good.

Any one else with other opinions?

I also made a major mistake in the date of a last menstrual period. Hope that wont affect me too much!!
