Question first time dressage

In about 2 weeks in doing my first dressage test iv been riding for 6 years now so I'm pretty experienced iv entered into a dressage to music test and I just need a few tips and pointers also this is part of my test what do you think about it and on a 20 m by a 40m arena how long will it take to do it I'm also in a easy band (just have to do a walk to canter) but my fellow peps are older and well better really there all my friends but I can see me coming last xD any way here's my test (well one half) feel free to post ideas
不tart at ( a )up center line in trot
不top at ( x ) salute
付rot to (c ) track left
病t (a) 20m circle
品n (a/f) corner ask for walk
品n (m/c) corner walk to canter(dreading that part)
病t (b) trot
貧ot sure of the proper name but I know it as a tea cup at (h) (changes the rain)

Well I know its not allot but it only needs to last 3 minutes 30 ish all together

Well good luck

But I remember my first dressage test and I have a piece of advice that I had to learn the hard way.

Be ready if your horse has an off day

Good Luck

EDIT: Your last one, do you mean a demi volt?
And I think it's a good test for you first ever one, and always think a head and relax but still try to keep yours and your horses form.

Good luck! Did you make the test up yourself? Only thing I'd change is using the arena a bit more, rather than just sticking to the outside tracks and riding down the whole long side in between movements. Judges like to see creative use of the arena in a freestyle so get into the middle of the arena as much as you can ;) Put circles in at E and B, change rein across the diagonal and short diagonal etc
