just keep practising, work on those things specifically. If you have a driving instructor then book another lesson and show them the sheet with the feedback so they can go over those things with you. good luck for next time

I would suggest you pay extra attention to the mirrors,make sure you signal well before the junction but always check the mirrors before you indicate. While driving keep the shape of the road and make sure in traffic you have your 1st gear on in order for you to be a lot easier but to be honest it's all more practical than theoretical so them yourself before the test comes

Practice practice practice if you can on another car too alongside lessons. Just drive randomly to start getting more comfortable on the road and around other drivers. You do have to exaggerate your observations on the test while you're driving, even talk out loud to the examiner what you're doing when you're doing it.

hi, i have 2 more lessons before my next test, the worst thing is, the place where i messed up i did the day before on a mock test and i passed, but on test i was in a totally different car with a totally different instructor as mine wasn't available, it was the first time i'd ever drove that car before and it was totally different to the one i learn in and my car, so i don't think that helped with the nerves either. i have a mind set of "i will do this and i can do this" but i am sooo scared of failing again, i need to pass this test, but on the test day i drove the car to the test centre and it was sooooo different to all the cars i have drove, clutch was different and everything about it
