Visitors visa to take exams are not uncommon, so I think your chances of getting one are pretty good.

Even if your F1 is not physically cancelled, once you stop your studies, the school will list you in SEVIS as having lost your status as a full-time student and your F1 cannot be used to enter the US unless you have a new I-20 and have ensured your SEVIS information has been updated. IT would not be the correct visa for you to enter the US to take exams anyway.
