    Do or die

    I have tried to use "do or die" in my sentence, but I am not sure if it sounds natural. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    Tomorrow will be do or die for Peter on his final exam.

    Re: Do or die

    The preposition "on" makes the sentence unnatural. Try,
    Tomorrow will be do or die for Peter; on it's his final exam.
