I'm going to fail my exam

(I think this is where I should post this, sorry if I'm wrong!)
These are my last exams, after this I'm graduating high school. I have an exam today that I had a whole week to study for, but I didn't. I tried but nothing could make me concentrate (I usually manage to concentrate just fine). I tried studying in silence, using relaxing music, asmr, a "reward system", etc. Nothing works. I have about 6 hours and I feel like giving up, this subject is very difficult and I always had trouble with it. I actually have a very good grade for the lesson so I also feel bad cause I feel like I will let my teacher down. There's no way I can relax anymore, I'm so tense I can't even try to remember the basics.

I feel the same except mine's in 45 minutes. Honestly all you can do is try your best and I know that means nothing right now but if you can't concentrate, you can't concentrate. And you've tried to revise. This is just one exam and you always know more than you think. I can't even remember the layout for my exam today but I know when I'm in there I'll remember something. And something is better than nothing.
I feel like I've just rambled, so I'm sorry. But good luck and just remember this is one exam and everybody has blips.
Hope it goes ok. :hug5:
