Why do I tend to forget things as soon as I enter the exam hall? Watch

    I know that this has something to do with context and memory. So I did my GCSE's last year. In my History exam, I knew everything before I entered the examination room. But as soon as I entered and I was seated, my head went blank and I couldn't remember the dates anymore. I did revise a lot. I need to make sure that I don't forget things this year. However, I do feel that I may have revised wrong due to me doing notes for the History exam. I am doing flashcards this year and I can remember a lot of information compared to last year. Has anyone got any good advice?
