They probably haven't had time to did the call with all the interviewers and decide to pass you or not.

I would strongly recommend to call HR and ask them directly, it's not a bad thing to do!

Its fine, they need time to collect the feedbacks. Just wait for a bit and if there is no response you can call or e-mail the HR.

On average it can take about a week or two to receive an answer. You can wait a few more days, and contact with HR to get an update (FYI Friday is a good day to send an email/call as they tend to be more responsive).
