Hi,
Thanks for the query.

Your brother seems to be most probably suffering from anxiety or phobia for exams.
Exam fear is a very common phenomenon which affects many students. Due to fear, he is also forgetting often during exams.

Meditation and yoga can have beneficial effects for students. This needs to be started well in advance of any exams or stress however.

Also, there are other forms of therapy like Cognitive behavioural therapy. CBT can help you to change how you think ('Cognitive') and thus help you change what you do ('Behaviour').

CBT has been shown to help with many different types of problems. These include: anxiety, depression, panic, phobias (including agoraphobia and social phobia), stress, bulimia, obsessive compulsive disorder, post-traumatic stress disorder, bipolar disorder and psychosis.

You will need to XXXXXXX a psychiatrist for this.

Hope I have answered your query. I will be available for follow up queries.

Wishing you good health.
