The most important thing is to remain Calm. The more you remain calm, more confidently you will be able to answer questions. I know it is not easy when you see people with green letter and you can see people getting their visas rejected.
My F1 was rejected 3 times in 2012. I had lost all hopes and never wanted to go to US. But maybe I was destined to go. I got married in 2016 and my H4 visa was approved. We again decided to go for F1 and wanted to give it a try sincerely.
I think if you have an admit from good university and course, definitely more chances of approval.
