I think the limit is 3. And it should ideally be from Most likely to lesser likely. You can however add multiple lines in the history and physical exam findings as well as in the tests/labs you'd like to order.

You have 10 minutes for the entire note. You should be happy you're only being asked to come up with 3 differentials!
