    First of all look into Dyslexic aids you can get (ie colour plastic to go over the exam paper etc). Your memory problems could be anxiety based, so learn to relax a little with lots of past papers, even breathing and smile (I found the hormones produced combat flight/fight ones).

    I'd experiment with your revision techniques as well, see if you can put yourself in a stressful situation and recite the information you need to, the more you do this the more you'll get used to doing it under exam conditions.

    Visualisation is a great way of prepping for exams. Visualise yourself in as much detail as you can doing the exam and being very successful and mega happy with the results. Keep doing that, matched with a positive mental attitude, - you don't just want a good mark, you want the best mark you can get.

    Good Luck.
