So in ALL my exams I do horrendously bad. My assignments are almost always 60-90% and my exams drop waay below that at around 30-50% even though I study for days before the exam. It's when I get into the exams I panic, get anxious, panic some more and by halfway through I've forgotten everything I had studied.
I'm just not sure what I can do about it.

"Panic" is no excuse for failure, sort it out immediately with your GP

My advise would be to simulate "exam conditions" as much as possible, ie print out past papers/test and attempt in the time limit w/ any distractions and only task being finishing the paper. Maybe tell your teachers about this.
I totally agree with this post the only way you can overcome this problem is to do lots of past papers under exam conditions as it allows you to get used to you having to sit there and concentrate allowing you to hopefully improve your grade. Also relating the other post (sorry forgot to look at who posted it) maybe try a different way of revising for exams. what are you doing a the moment? is it helpful? you could always try
Flashcards
Notes
Mindmaps
Quizzes
explaining it to your parents/brother/sister/grandparents (only if you feel confident with it)
Hopefully this helps
