I bet that everyone is nervous in that situation. If it makes you feel a little better, I'm one of the greatest worrywart in the world and passed in the 1st time.

I don't mean to scare you or anything, and I hope you do pass. Just remember that if you fail it is not a big deal - just means you need to log more hours on the road and get more comfortable with driving - it should be second nature, you shouldn't have to actively think about what you are doing while you are driving. Not saying you shouldn't pay attention of course!
After having my "N" for the mandatory two years I took my full license test and passed with 100% accuracy.
Good luck!! I know how nerve wracking it can be!
Actually, what I've thought is that your actual learning happens still a lot after the test
. It's more like the required minimum so they know that you know basics. For example I've come a long way from the point when I passed my test and whole the thing has turned more automatic for me along hundred of kilometers.
It's also good to know what you don't know. For example I think that for a fledgling driver who doesn't have that much experience under their belt, it isn't that important to hold discussion when driving but know that they isn't very able for that yet
Good luck, I'm sure you'll do fine
