You have to study and prepare, nobody will save you with magic advice.

The exam is not a joke and you have to take it very seriously. In some aspect for IMGs it is more difficult than clicking answers during knowledge test.

Performance anxiety is a common problem. You need to consult a psychiatrist on the best way to cope with it. Perhaps anxiolytics is good choice for you.

I see you need emotional support.

Practice, practice and practice some more and when you think you have practiced enough, practice some more.
I practiced for months in a real clinic with a very good study partner who pointed out my weaknesses.

Take it like a test. Nothing more, nothing less. Have a good night's sleep and take anxiolytic if you have to.

Do your best & leave the result to God.
