Yes, it's possible to be below "borderline" performance. Otherwise it would be impossible to fail CS. The ICE section isn't testing how well you spoke English or if you handed your patient a tissue when she started crying. It's about asking pertinent questions based on the patient's chief complaint and presentation, performing the appropriate physical exam maneuvers, and writing a note based on your findings.

If you feel the scores don't reflect your performance, though, by all means request a re-grade.
