Unhappy Not sure I passed my CS exam


I just took the CS exam, a few days ago in chicago. I walked out of the exam with a very bad feeling. All I could think about were all the mistakes that I made, and that I am going to have to repeat this exam. =(

I think my differentials sucked! In my 1st and 3rd case, i forgot to listen to the heart and lungs, and I forgot to do psoas and obturators sign (it was necessary). I think I was empathetic, but I dont think it was enough
This is the stuff that I can think of. Im sure i made more mistakes.

Im going to get my result in june, but ill go crazy until then. what do you guys think. are there chances of me passing?
any insight is appreciated!

thanks and good luck to you all!

Default I feel your pain

I had the exact feeling, and I even think I did worse than you.

My result should be out on the 27th, later this week, I think. I succeeded in getting the CS out of my mind for almost 2 month, and I''m planning to start worrying on the 27th .

My advice is to just stop thinking about this and get busy with whatever you planned to do after the exam. You may look at this I have these mistakes in my CS exam! to feel better. But then leave the CS forum, get the CS out of your mind, and never get back until your results are out so you tell us about your experience after passing the CS

Good luck.
