Yes,, a bit of a pickle, running out of answers. A chat to your GP would be my first step. This is crutial as thete might be other aspects to his tiredness like sleep apnea. My diagnodis of same and the use of a cpap machine changed my life.
Have you tried him studying for short bursts say one hour then a 20 minute walk, one hour and snack, etc? Variety is good.

Let us know what happens. Geoff.
