Unhappy Didn't perform well in exam...worried about score.

Hi friends!!!

I gave step 3 few days back. Multiple choice questions were ok but i messed up 1 ccs case. The patient didn't improve till the end. In another case, the patient improved partially. Rest of the cases went well. Did anyone have a similar experience? I am worried about my score. Can anyone give feedback about how I will score? I am worried.
