Rounds 1-4 are always the same and follow standard European Knife Game rules.
Round 5 however is randomized each time and unless you are Max Payne it will be too fast and complex for you to get in three tries. Counteract this by putting your left thumb on the start button and pressing start and A almost simultaneously (A needs to come slightly before start for this to work) so you can see where the next place you'll have to stab is.
I tried to do this for 3 straight hours before looking for help, for your own mental health please please please do the above before anything else. (though this method does make this possible it more than quadruples the time it takes to finish the round and still demands all of your concentration)
