    Perhaps you didn't study much or you just aren't good at taking tests.

    Some people don't do good on test. For example, taking the SAT for some people is extremely challenging. Some people loses their focus easily, others can concentrate for long periods of time.

    Probably because you're not studying enough. I think I'm a pretty smart person myself, but when I don't study correctly for a test, I end up getting a pretty low score.

    You may just not take tests well. Some people don't

    Or perhaps you're not as smart as you believe.
