Guys. Retaining information has nothing to do with how good you are at taking tests. The question isn't about if you're good at learning things, it's if you're good at taking tests. Test-taking is a skill completely outside of if you know the material.

That being said, I'm great at taking tests. I've never had an issue with them - I don't always score well obviously but the scores have been consistent with how well I do in class or better, which means tests work for me as a gauge of if I've learned the information. I'm especially good at essay tests, not sure why. Probably because my natural writing style is good according to my teachers so even if my information isn't 100% perfect the style makes up for it.
