When I was in school, (business program), I was very good at all the project work. Mostly A range in that stuff.
But I was not good at tests and this would bring my mark down. Mainly the quantitative material. I just couldn't bring myself to open a textbook and study. But when I had to do it for a project, I could.
I'm not an organized person and also not good with time management. Do a lot of people have this problem of not being able to study regularly?

This is how I answered a similar question yesterday...
Q: How do you force yourself to study everyday?
A: You get paranoid. Like playing an intense violent kill-or-be-killed video game. Once you get in that mindset, you think in terms of survival and what you need to do to survive and kill the enemy.
Now, what this means us that you don't think in dry factual terms like "Columbus sailed the ocean blue in 1492." but begin to think like the teacher as in "If I was him/her, what sort of questions would I ask on an exam for my students?" Once you do that, then you have problems to solve and you solve them. This is studying. But, it is also a confidence builder and, subconsciously, you are getting positive feedback - like "runners high" - and you keep going. Then, when you later do well on the exam, you keep up that method of studying.
This mentality can take you far in life.

Maybe some kind of learning difficulty or attention deficit disorder.. My parents assumed that when I was younger because I always had trouble sitting down and studying as well despite getting good grades but it turned out I just have a high IQ and found the study material boring because it was too uninteresting/easy for me. I'm a bit afraid this is gonna become more of a problem for me later though as I might actually need to study for exams in university but just won't know how to.
My advice, take both an official IQ- but also an ADHD test. One doesn't exclude the other by the way.0
