Future conditional (converting some sentences into conditional form with "gdyby")

Hello!
I would like to ask for some help.... I heard that in Polish there's no plus for future conditional. My task is to convert these sentences into conditional form with gdyby and I don't know what to do with future sentences.

ex.
Jeśli będę się uczyć, na pewno zdam egzamin.
Gdybym................., na pewno zdałam (zdam?) egzamin.

or

Jeśli Kasia będzie więcej pracować, będzie więcej zarabiać.
Gdyby Kasia ......................, ........................ ??

What happens to będzie? Does it disappear?

I would be very grateful and happy if you could help me :) Thanks a lot in advance... :)

Both sentences have to be in future tens?

Jeśli będę się uczyć, na pewno zdam egzamin.
Gdybym................., na pewno zdałam (zdam?) egzamin.

Gdybym się uczyła (uczył), na pewno bym zdała (zdał) egzamin.

Jeśli Kasia będzie więcej pracować, będzie więcej zarabiać.
Gdyby Kasia ......................, ........................ ??

Gdyby Kasia więcej pracowała, zarabiała by więcej.

this exercise I think is to show that if in English conditionals translates two different words in Polish conditionals

jeśli is used only if the outcome/result is still a matter of future

Jeśli się nauczę (będę się uczył) na egzamin to go zdam. or Jeśli się (na)uczyłeś na egzamin to powinieneś zdać.

if actions already led to some result and you speculate what if you had taken different actions then you use gdybym

Gdybym się uczył na egzamine to (pewnie) bym go zdał.

Yes. Simply speaking,jeśli is used in sentences which correspond to English conditionals 0 and 1. Gdyby is used in conditionals 2, 3 and mixed.
