Unhappy Worried after my Step 3 Exam

Hi guys !

I got over with my step 3 a couple of days back and have been really worried about it since then. I think I messed up my ccs cases cuz MOST of em automatically end in like 5 mins flat. Now I'm not even sure if the pt was beginning to do well. It just ended. N with most of them I felt I could do some more management. Anyway plz any insight into this would be helpful. I don't think the fact that the cases just ends in 4-5 mins could mean anything good.

I had the same problem. Gave my exam 3 weeks ago. It felt really bad. I didnt know most of the mcqs, stuck between 2 answers that seemed right. My cases ended in 5 to 6 mins! None of them progressively got better unlike in Uworld where they tell you that the patient is improving...
I had one case that got worse despite everything that I did. It was the only case where I ran out of time, but it ended after the patient got worse.
Yet, my score report came today and I score 244!!! I was so sure that I wouldn't even pass... I cried immediately after my exam and several days later too.. So trust me when I ask you not to worry

I see great scores on step 3
In this forum
My score was much lower
I heard lower scores from people around me
But here scores are shooting in the sky
It seems I underestimated the exam
