Finnish translation:Kokeesi menee varmasti oikein hyvin.
Explanation:
Exam can be koe, testi, tutkinto.

Tutkinto would be, e.g. the final exam for a degree. "Koe" and "testi" are more general. "Testi" would be used if somebody is applying for some position or something alike. If it is an entrance exam, it would be "pääsykoe".

So here are the conjugations of these words:
koe - kokeesi
pääsykoe - pääsykokeesi
testi - testisi
tutkinto -tutkintosi

The -si ending refers to "you".
