    Look in fadail -e- quran

    final chapters, there is a dua quoted from hadith about reading

    surah yaseen
    surah alif laam meem sajdah
    surah dikhan
    surah tabarak

    in the latter part of the night, on a thursday in 4 rakah salah. and after salah you need to pray a specific dua.

    this was also recommended by hadhrat maulana mohammed zakariyya r.a to maulana yusuf motala d.b in their correspondence.

    If you dont access to the book then get a South African print Quran and look in the back, the same dua is there too.

    First and foremost, abstain from sin. Sinning adversely affects the memory.

    Then it says on AskImam this method (mentionned by brother SY1):

    4. To improve your memory the following dua is very beneficial. It was prescribed to Ali (Radhiyallahu Anhu) when he complained of his weak memory. The method of dua is thus:

    On a Thursday night, wake up in the last portion of the night. If the last portion is difficult, then wake up the middle of the night. If that too is difficult, then the first portion of the night. Preform four rakat in such a manner that in the first rakah you recite Surah Al-Fatiha and Surah Yaseen. In the second rakah Surah Al-Fatiha and Surah Al-Dukhan. In the third rakah Surah Al-Fatiha and Al-Sajdah. In the forth rakah Al-Fatiha and Surah Al-Mulk. After completing the Salah praise Allah and send salutations upon Rasullah (Sallalahu Alaihi Wasallam) and the rest of the Prophets. Ask for forgiveness for all the Muslims and all those who passed away with Iman. Then at the end recite the following dua:


    اللَّهُمَّ ارْحَمْنِي بِتَرْكِ الْمَعَاصِي أَبَدًا مَا أَبْقَيْتَنِي وَارْحَمْنِي أَنْ أَتَكَلَّفَ مَا لَا يَعْنِينِي وَارْزُقْنِي حُسْنَ النَّظَرِ فِيمَا يُرْضِيكَ عَنِّي اللَّهُمَّ بَدِيعَ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ذَا الْجَلَالِ وَالْإِكْرَامِ وَالْعِزَّةِ الَّتِي لَا تُرَامُ أَسْأَلُكَ يَا أَللَّهُ يَا رَحْمَنُ بِجَلَالِكَ وَنُورِ وَجْهِكَ أَنْ تُلْزِمَ قَلْبِي حِفْظَ كِتَابِكَ كَمَا عَلَّمْتَنِي وَارْزُقْنِي أَنْ أَتْلُوَهُ عَلَى النَّحْوِ الَّذِي يُرْضِيكَ عَنِّيَ اللَّهُمَّ بَدِيعَ السَّمَوَاتِ وَالْأَرْضِ ذَا الْجَلَالِ وَالْإِكْرَامِ وَالْعِزَّةِ الَّتِي لَا تُرَامُ أَسْأَلُكَ يَا أَللَّهُ يَا رَحْمَنُ بِجَلَالِكَ وَنُورِ وَجْهِكَ أَنْ تُنَوِّرَ بِكِتَابِكَ بَصَرِي وَأَنْ تُطْلِقَ بِهِ لِسَانِي وَأَنْ تُفَرِّجَ بِهِ عَنْ قَلْبِي وَأَنْ تَشْرَحَ بِهِ صَدْرِي وَأَنْ تَغْسِلَ بِهِ بَدَنِي فَإِنَّهُ لَا يُعِينُنِي عَلَى الْحَقِّ غَيْرُكَ وَلَا يُؤْتِيهِ إِلَّا أَنْتَ وَلَا حَوْلَ وَلَا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللَّهِ الْعَلِيِّ الْعَظِيمِ

    (Tirmidhi Chapter Dua for Hifz)

    Recite

    رَبِّ ٱشۡرَحۡ لِى صَدۡرِى وَيَسِّرۡ لِىٓ أَمۡرِى

    and يا عليم abundantly.

    and Allah Ta'ala Knows Best.

    What about reciting Ya Qawwiyu 11x with your right hand on the forehead after Fardh prayers? I was told by a Mufti in Pakistan.

    The 4 rakat prayer means you have to memorize those Surah's first. So it will take few months of memorizing just to learn this process.

    The dua at Sunnipath is very beneficial mashallah--you read it 10 times everyday.
    But I don't think any of these are quick fixes. You need do to them over a long time to realize the benefits. So if your exams are coming up very soon just stay up night studying
