First thing is try to concentrate on the thing you want to remember. You can improve your concentration by forming the habit of bringing back your mind whenever it wanders from your subject you study. Develop an interest in the matter which you are studying.Relax ! Remove the tensions of exams from your mind. If you have any emotional problem then settle down it before going to study with your parents or teachers. Otherwise it will be a distraction for your studies.

Second thing is repeat the matter which you want to remember. Always try to understand the thing you are learning and then repeat it. Try to study for a short time period every day rather than a long period now and then. Try to study every day and not on the previous day of the exam.

Third thing is have confidence in yourself that you can learn it and produce in the answer sheet. Tell to yourself that " This subject is useful to me and I like it more each day ".

Fourth thing is learn by wholes rather than parts. Try to learn one subject or one chapter at one stretch. Do not go for another works or to watch T.V before you complete your subject.

Sixth thing is try to relate the things you are studying with the things you are interested in. By associating one thing to another we can remember certain things. Try to associate certain years in history with your birth year or month or your roll number which you won't forget.

This is an interesting article describing the brain and memory function. The brain starts developing with the increase in age and becomes fully developed when one becomes adult.
After a particular age, around 60 to 70 years, there is no production of fresh brain cells unlike the normal cells in other parts of the body. So it is obvious that the mental power, that is the capacity and capability of the brain, will be diminishing with increasing age.
Many people believe that there are some tonics and supplements which can boost the brain power. To some extent this could be true but after a particular age it is difficult to say whether these nourishment really make that happen or will increase the brain power only to a small extent.
