Could you give us some details? What was your study process leading up to your exam? What is the effect of failing this exam?
As a general answer, I will say that failing an exam should be used as a learning process. You may find that whatever study method you used doesn't work for you. Try another one. Regardless of how badly you think this failure will affect you, you can move on if you have the will and drive. Say you lose one year of your life and have to retake whatever exam it is (assuming the exam is once per year). Study harder than you ever did before in that one year. You'll develop a work ethic that won't allow you to fail ever again. In fact, a failure should doubly motivate you to work harder for your next exam.
In the end, just remember to never give up. If you restrict yourself to a loser's mentality, you'll be stuck within the realm of failure forever.

Good luck on your next exam, and next time outline your question specifically so that we can reply with an appropriate answer. Whether it is your study method or your attitude, change something and try something new until you find whatever works for you.

Sounds like a difficult test. Were you able to study for enough hours every day?

You might be interested in a general study skills course like Learning How to Learn. The course just started on August 1st, and it's free to watch (choose "audit this course" when signing up, if you don't want to pay). It includes mnemonics, but has range of other tips too.

i have trained emergency medicine and surgery and have been taking board tests every year and i have taught myself to become a very good test taker. There is a difference between being smart or knowing a lot or just being a good test taker. If you want to learn how to get good at taking tests then ...practice taking tests! Study old tests and find a question bank and just start learning the concepts. They will usually ask the same concept each year and each test. Then take your mnemonics and use them to learn the concepts or the questions you do not know.Spend as much time on the things you do not know and less time on the things you have mastered. Get a good night sleep before the tests and take naps while studying and make sure to keep exercising everyday while you are studying. If you do these things i am sure you will do well!

Please don't think of this as a failure. It is a challenge to do better next time. With a bit of memory exercise to aid your study time, you'll exceed your expectations going forward. All of us who get into memory techniques have that potential. :)

How to master any subject or exam:

1.First know your learning style:
A) Audio Learner ( tape lectures or yourself talking, reading aloud)
B) Visual Learner ( Mindmaps, colored notes, powerpoints, flash cards)
C) Hands On Learner (Listening while on treadmill, make a game out of it, shoot hoops)

I want to make one thing clear that I have noticed so many people on here screw up on including myself at first.
*****ROUTE LEARNING IS REQUIRED TO UNDERSTAND THE INFO. THE MEMORY PLACE DOES NOT TEACH YOU THE INFO IT ALLOWS YOU TO RECALL IT, OF COURSE YOU CAN'T REMEMBER THE INFO IF YOU LACK THE UNDERSTANDING OF THE INFO TO BEGIN WITH!!!!! *****

2. Route Learning: (LEARNING INFO BUT NOT RECALL INFO)
A) Yes, you need to understand the INFO/Martial before you can store it.
B) Take Notes, make connections
C) How do you know if you understand? Self Quiz short answers no multiple choice, Socratic questioning, explain to a friend

2. Recall: Memory Palace (NOT LEARNING INFO BUT RECALL INFO)
A) First meditate everyday 30mins go through you palace. I don't care what other people say you need to know it like the back of your hand. When it comes to medical and law the detail is what matters. You need to know every inch, every corner, every step and where all the furniture is. Its one thing if you want to memorize a dolt shopping list but to memorize whole books, periodic tables, and dictionaries yes mental gymnastics is required. The mind is a muscle so is your place the more you use it the more comfortable you will be and you can build on it. If you seldom use it then yes you will move around second guessing yourself.

3.Self test:
A) People think they know things when they clearly don't. You cannot say you forget something if you did not understand it and store it, in the first place. Coming from my mom, Harvard Graduate.
B) If you can study where you will be taking the actually test you can use the classroom to put you in that hire pressure situation while efficiently referring to your memory palace.
C) Most students forgot info in the test and when they leave they have that moment. The point of the Memory palace is to locate and extract info whenever you please you don't have to worry about forgetting if you know exactly where to find it.

Quiz, Quiz, Quiz, and quiz some more either you can't recall because your image was boring or because you don't know your palace. I use imaginary worlds but I know them because I meditate first then quiz myself on my palace alone. You can use an excel file, make a blueprint, write out a descriptive essay. Notice how in depth Hannibal lecture palace is talk about detail!

PS: As much as a perfectionist as my mom is she stresses the important of having fun and enjoying learning so go about this with serious fun. Bobby Fischer was obsessed with chess but to him it was serious fun!
