It can feel like you’re the only one having these problems. There are a lot of other people studying and taking exams, it might help to join a study group. If your school doesn’t have one, you might ask about starting one up.

Your school also might have a library where information is posted on study groups or peer support groups.  Some schools have student mentors that you can talk to and who can give you some tips.
