To be a good friend, you have to make her see the bigger picture.  For example, focus on how minor this is in the scheme of these.  She has her family and her health.  Then, help her focus on solutions.  What can she do now, to make up for this?

The first thing you'll have to decide, it seems to me, is why your friend failed examinations.  That reason will determine what kind of encouragement you'll need to give her.  If you imagine she failed them because she wasn't prepared, what might have kept her from being prepared?  Perhaps there was sickness in the home or other distractions beyond her control, and that requires one form of encouragement.  Perhaps she studied diligently but still couldn't pass the exams.  In that case, your encouragement might take the form of offering to help her study next time, or perhaps showing her a better way to study.  Perhaps she didn't study at all and you need to scold her a little as you encourage her to work harder next time.  I'm not sure what you might be most comfortable and familiar with, but it's always best to draw from your own experiences when possible so the dialogue sounds real and believable.  I know you're looking for 30 or 40 lines, but also make sure the lines aren't simply short, one- or two-word answers; if you do that, the entire thing will sound like a rather silly and inane (empty) conversation.  You want this to sound like it meant something to both parties--real disappointment and real encouragement.  The thing about written dialogue is that it often sounds stilted and fake, somehow.  Be as real as possible and offer some helpful advice and I'm sure you'll do a terrific job.
