Remembering exam questions?

When i have an exam I forget exam quetions and my answers too quickly no matter if i passed or not. During exam, mostly i can remember the answer if i already knew.
Is that familiar to you? Is there anyone like me?

Re: Remembering exam questions?

Im not sure what you mean here. If I read you right you are concerned that you cant remember the exam questions and your answers AFTER the exam is over.
Am I correct?
If I am, why would you want to do that- the exam is already over.

Re: Remembering exam questions?

My ADD son is like you, doesn’t remember the questions , he has memory issues because of his ADD.
But for me as anon ADHD person, I do remember questions from the test, depending on the length of the test and the number of the questions.

I was just like you and still am without meds. My issue was usually from not paying attention or really grasping the material in class. Usually, daydreaming or trying to carry on with others made learning very limited for me. I made it through school by pulling all-nighters studying the night or two before exams.

Unfortunately, I stored just enough in my short term memory to get by. Literally, hours after some exams, I couldn’t remember 10% of what I had just memorized and regurgitated back onto paper. After that, my brain is spent and those short term memories quickly and completely disappear.

It’s a shame because I’ve lost a lifetime of information.

All, I remember is all the fun and exciting times and very little content from my university degree and education. Well, at least, I do have very vivid memories of lots of good times and those are still priceless to me.

Yes you are correct. Sometimes my friends ask me what were the questions, what was i asked.And i feel stupid, embrassed because i cannot remember most of questions. Sometimes a few hours after exam we critise about exam and i can remember questions hardly.

I also couldn't pay attention in class. So i had to study from books myself. I learned very few things in class.
