Probability My chances of passing the CS?

Hi guys,

I am such an anxious person. Did my step 2 CS in LA on the 21st. Can someone tell me how they mark it.. I mean I got a lot of weird vague cases in the exam.

I did quick focused exams. My English is good but this exam is so vague.

I heard that people with exceptional records fail while those with so so records ace this exam. Can someone tell me how they did in their exam and what the outcome was so I can kinda compare my performance with theirs?

Thanks a lot for your efforts

Oh man I just realized that in my CS exam when I asked about drinking and the patient said yes and if they drank excessively I asked the CAGE questions but I forgot to properly counsel them about drinking.
I did it for all the smokers and drug abusers but for some stupid reason after asking the CAGE questions and they said yes to all of them I forgot to tell them how bad it was to drink and why they should stop.

This happened for like in two cases how badly does this effect my chances of passing?

Any opinions welcome.

Thanks

Not counseling alcoholism is not a grave mistake.
