Whenever I had a 'what if' question before the exams ,I used to write down all the 'what ifs' and take one at a time.I considered the worst that could happen and more often than not ,once I wrote it down ,it would come down to a few chapters that I didn't study that hard.Then I would look at the past years papers for how much weightage was given to those chapters.If it was insignificant,I would focus on my strengths and forget my weaknesses till I was done with the other chapters.If the portion included from those chapters was a lot I would immediately stop worrying and focus on them.At the end of the day I would always tell myself ' Worrying about possibilities has never helped me,but acting to solve those worries always helps'.

First get rid of the "What If" thing. Never what if anything you are asking for negativity when you do this. Second, study as much as possible know the material as well as you know your name. Third do the best you can and be pleased with the outcome as long as you gave your best.
