Your future is at stake here and it is important to give your best. Worry about the results later, since in failure you will learn a lot of bitter lessons that will make you even stronger and if you ever pass, be very thankful and be very glad to yourself, your parents instructors and your Creator, for you will finally reap the fruits of your labor. It’s a win win situation no matter what is the outcome of your examination. Worrying will just add to pressures and this is not favorable to you.
