For an F1 visa interview, several questions could be asked covering different areas, such as your admission, finance, work and family.

Some of the popular questions asked are as follows: 'why did you choose this course?', 'why did you apply for this sem?', 'who'll be sponsoring your education?', 'why did you quit your job (if you did)?', 'what made you choose (this) country?'.

The officer might have some delicate questions up his sleeve, such as 'why is your score so low?', 'how did you score so high?', 'what will you do if your visa is rejected?' and so on...

Nonetheless, if you're confident and you know that you'll easily surpass all these questions, then you shouldn't worry. Confidence is the key. Even if you get nervous during the interview, don't let it appear on your face. Talk politely and clearly and give honest answers.
