Another thing I found helpful while studying for the bar (which is less feasible now) was going to the library to study. I think there's something about being around other (stressed) people who are also studying for the bar that helps you focus. You could try to replicate that with something like a group text/videochat where you check in regularly.

Essentially when I have a plan for the worst case scenario, it just decreases my stress.
Right now there is so much pressure on you because you feel like you MUST pass.
But sit down and really plan out what will happen if the worst thing occurs.
For you, the worst thing that will happen is that you don't pass. So what happens if you don't pass? Have a real plan for that.
For me, I figured that if I didn't pass I would have to dip into my savings, I would give myself at least one more opportunity to pass the California bar, I might take on some side jobs, etc etc.
Having an alternate plan for the worst case scenario took so much stress and anxiety off of my shoulders.
If you pass that's great but having a plan for not passing gets some stress off of you and you'll just attack your studies as you would anything else.
