Default Worrying about results

Guys i need ur help i think um going crazy,i had my step 2cs exsm one month ago ,um still thinking about exam and discovering mistakes in this time um studying step 1 and cant concentrate because i have flashbacks i did these mistakes
1-didnot do closure in first case and didnot do counsel
2-i believe my english was good but not perfect,when i speak long sentence as in closure i felt my language was not soo good.
3-missed 1st diagnosis in 3 cases till now(um still discovering mistakes when i study for step 1)
4-forget to put speculum of otoscope in 2 ear examination.
5-didnot ask about CAGE in any case although pt were drinking.
6-couldnt find alot in phsical exam so my diagnosis was rarely supported by something in exam
7-did very focused exam
Things i beileve i did right:
1-always introduce my self,wash my hand.
2-did closure in all cases except 1
3-answered pt qs to my best and asked if they have any concerns multiple times
4-was very empathetic with pt
5-helped pt sit and lay back ,tie their gown to the point some pts were surprised by my actions.
6-i beleve my pt notes is good especially hpi i wrote postive then write big capital NO then write negative symptoms related to case and dd

1. not a major issue if you did close your other cases
2. the exam is not about being perfect in English
3. not a big issue as long as you did not write something impossible, like an MI for diarrhea I was unsure of the diagnosis in many cases
4. mmm not a big issue I think
5. CAGE is questionare is not asked unless you suspect an alcohol problem, if your patient drinks "on the weekends", or "occasionally" no need for CAGE
6. True for most of the cases
7. This is the right thing, no need for abdominal exam in a case of COPD for example

I think there is nothing to worry about, you SHOULD PASS, relax

My DDs for 3-4 cases were not good.
Couldn't do closure for one case.
Couldn't answer one challenging question because of time.
Forget to lower the foot rest in one case and but then said sorry and did it when the patient told me.
I am sure that in one I case I realised about the drap when I was about to start examination and may be forgot it in one more case.
Used sanitizer for cleaning hands in all cases.
Because of nervousness, hesitated during saying a sentence . This happened twice only in two cases.
2 or 3 times the patient had to ask me to repeat the question or some word. Because of accent I guess.
And some other small mistakes.

Beside this I did well and completed all the patient notes. I attended the ximedus academy for 5 days too.

I don't know what will happen on 18 but I don't want to take all the pain and efforts of traveling and taking the exam again. Too much worried.

What do you think guys(who have passed the test recently)?

gosh i have got so many mistakes too guys.. I am more worried about ICE :/
in two cases i missed some important physical exam.. how much will it cost me? Please if anyone could be kind enough to tell me. besides one of my patient note got messed up i guess.. apart from that i too have some mistakes here and there but i never forgot to counsel. One of my patients had a very weird accent so i couldn't get some of the things she told me. Despite the fact she could understand me very well and i could understand her too but had some difficulty in the beginning.

hey i used sanitizer too and it's perfectly fine i guess. We even asked the proctors there and they said YES sanitizing hands is allowed on the exam. So i am sure that is not a problem.
