Default On why I thought I'd flunk it, but didn't!

Just received the coveted 'Pass' letter.

Won't blabber much except to mention that I had all the notions of failing it. But they passed me, yay!

Here's why I thought I would have flunked it:

1. Missed on 4 patient closures. No time in most, extended and unnecessary physical exam in others.
2. Missed writing the diagnostic work up in one patient note. (Lack of time, wrote too extensively in the History and Physical Exam tab.
3. Was completely disoriented with the diagnoses in two cases. Wrote the differentials like a blindly shot arrow.
4. Missed on sexual counselling for an HIV case. Seriously, how on earth did I miss that!
5. Didn't pay attention to a book the SP was holding. Remember, whatever SPs do or act is for a reason.
*The SP was super awesome, and he kept on deliberately pointing out his book to me, BUT I STILL MISSED IT Realised it while writing the PN.
6. Many other trivial errors like forgetting to summarize in some and no alcohol/smoking counselling in others.

I Passed. You will too. Chill it!
