You'll be okay, they can't expect you to learn everything. Make sure you be spontaneous in your speaking - as they hate regurgitated answers. Take it from me, I got an A* in the mocks and A* in real exam.

Use impressive phrases, explain your answers throughout and engage in a normal conservation. Keep the "ummms" and "urrr" to a minimum.

I have attached a list of useful phrases with this post that I used and they really helped.

I would agree with UrbanIncentive but I would recommend memorising a few answers to any topic areas you find particularly difficult, for me I tend to forget the exact phrasing in the exam and say the gist of it which actually helps make you sound fluent/ considered.
Focus on key phrases and the introductory questions that are always asked e.g Familie, Freizeit and so on

so would three/four answers from each topic be a reasonable amount to learn and just try rephrasing it for other questions

Probably, as long as you feel comfortable rephrasing it

Give a justification after every opinion, change tenses. You’ve got this
