The normal expression is "it aint over until X happens".
+2 | -1
This expression means that one should not admit defeat until the very end. Or, it means that one should not slow down when you realise that you will be defeated, but rather you should continue as if you believed that you will win, until the very end when

Till all is done, we don't know for sure what the outcome would be like.
