I had this problem when I was really worried about my first GCSE exams. I solved it by coming across the instagram account of a girl a few years above me in school who had died (i think by su1cide). Her account hadn't been deactivated and I creepily looked through her posts. It was clear that so many people loved her and she had so many friends, and it made me realise that her exam grades clearly mattered to noone after she died.
I could sleep after that because it made me realise that as long as I did everything I could to succeed (aka was a good/ not cowardly person) then I was doing the right thing and that's the kind of thing people talk about at your funeral.

Sorry that's totally morbid, but essentially my advice is to think about death to reframe your attitude to exams and so be able to sleep

ohhh reading it really made me sad... yes you are absolutely right there sometimes thinking about death helps me in such situation but when i am extremely panicked i cant think of it anymore but still i have some time before the exam so i will try to think about it over and over again (by the way thank you so much for your reply)

I mean maybe don't dwell on death all the time, it was mainly just a momentary realisation for me + the shock of realising this was the girl who had died (I had heard about it when it happened too)

I think it is better to sleep well before your exam so you would be fresh and your mind would be cool ...
