HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

It sounds as though you have the cold or flu virus. Unfortunately in the first few days your symptoms are likely to worsen.
The use of paracetamol, tepid sponging, cold liquids and fan therapy would reduce the fever and the paracetamol would also help in any muscle or joint pain.
There are antiseptic/ analgesic sprays or gargles that would help with the sore throat
It is important to get plenty of rest and drink alot of fluids. Since the flu is stirring it would be best if you are assessed by your doctor who can also give a letter to give to your school to excuse you from your examination.

Hope this helps and you feel better soon
