    Roll down your window slightly during the test so you can hear what's going on better. Very useful for the maneuvers.

    Bring a bottle of water with you and take a sip every time you are told to pull over to the side. Will calm you down slightly

    Don't assume you've failed the test just because you think you've made a mistake.

    Drive like it's a normal lesson

    Remember, your instructor told you to book the test because he/she knows that you are well above test standard.

    Best of luck.

    Thankyou!! I struggle with merging onto big roundabouts and the only time i was nervous was coming up to them. Failed due to misjudging when to pull out 5 mins before test ended☹️ was very busy roundabout and was waiting for at least 5 mins for a gap so lot of pressure. The cars were never ending and it was just after 4pm so all schools got out otherwise only got 3 minors😕

    Dont worry if u failed, you could still get into oxbridge if u smash your international driving exam. You could get into cambridge. im not sure about oxford though they tend to put emthasis on first driving exams.
