ADHD at School

PROBLEMS DURING EXAM
Keywords:


I have a problem regarding my performance during exams and tests. During the classes, it’s always easy to me to understand the topic, i write all the words said by my lecture, i even teach my friends (yes, i teach them)

When it comes to the exam, i study hard and again teach my friends but the problems come when it comes to the exam itself.

I ALWAYS FAIL TO UNDERSTAND EACH PROBLEMS DURING THE EXAM and end up having the lowest score among my group study. I have no idea why..i study hard and understand the subject well, have exercise with problems related to the subject but why i end up failing? This ALWAYS happens and it’s infuriating.

I have ADD inattentive and haven’t got any treatment yet. Have you ever got the same experience?


Please share your experience or thoughts and it’d be even better if you could give some solutions.

Thank you

If you are easily distracted you may need to write your exams in a small room away from the larger group. This is an accommodation which schools usually make if it is requested.
