I'm sure you will do just fine. I was pretty nervous for my first test too but it went well. Remember sensei says you are ready. If he says it it must be so. Believe it and you will do fine.

Remember to breathe, and that you control the pace of the techniques. Yes to what previous commenter said about your Sensei.
They have seen what they wanted to see, this is a formality. Remember that your ukes want to support you also.

Happy Testing!

Well, I guess you would have tested by now. I'm going to assume you did just fine!
