    .... Sometimes just
    being in the class room/lecture theatre helps focus the mind. I once
    heard it said that more students pass exams if they take it in the
    same room as the one in which they were taught.
  That is correct. The phenomenon is called "encoding specificity" and is generally accepted by cognitive psychologists.
Also applies to drinking coffee, drinking beer, time of day, etc. Whatever environmental
factors were present when learning act as "triggers" when recalling.
