Lord, have mercy.
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

Final exams are very very stressful.

Prayers that your daughter will have the confidence to do herself justice in this exam.

I recall my finals in college.  They weren't exactly fun and that was at Penn State.  I can't imagine what they are like at Harvard.
