This kind of situation arises frequently during exams as a result of anxiety..

Since his exams are going on I would not recommend any drug trial this time.

There are certain anxiolytic drugs which can help but as exams are going I would not suggest any here online because they may cause sedation.
Try some meditation and make sure he doesnt consume excessive coffee.

Gud luck for his exams.
