I took confidence in the fact I knew my routes so I was familiar.

Also I practiced well around busy roundabouts, junctions, other traffic, maneovers etc.

Good luck

dont worry about failing first test even if it's a lot more convenient for you, because a lot of people failed their first time.
i had to do my test 4 times before passing on the 4th, in a different, quieter town too. you can't foresee what kind of unexpected things are going to happen so i will say that it's all down to luck. examiners are subjective, as they will see an incident on a spectrum examiner to examiner. you could always watch youtube videos on top ten mistakes during driving tests.

Don’t worry happens to all of us. On my first test I had to do the bay parking, I failed because I nearly hit a parked car at the side of the road (I did mine in Enfield) I passed second time after doing another bay park and an emergency stop. My advice would be to think the examiner is not there and just drive as you normally do.

UPDATE
I passed my test! With no minors! It wasn't too bad, once I got to the test centre I felt ready and confident 😊

Just breathe and say in your head that your e driving with your instructor like a normal lesson but you want to prove him/her that you're the best driver but not too cocky about it 😂 I know it sounds easier said than done but it really helped me. Just take a deep breath before driving off and drive like you normally would! Good luck!

Firstly, just believe in yourself! If you can, try and get your instructor to sit in the back of your car whilst doing the test.

Just be in the moment. Speak and converse with the examiner if anything. They are humans like you, and trust me that rapport and trust will go a long way
