I studied day and night. Throughout the whole year. To a point I was over-doing it compared to the other students. I did fairly well in my assignments in terms exams. However, I did incredibly poorly in summer 'exams'.

why... I don't understand. People around me who barely made any effort managed to achieve amazing results... Everything I worked so hard for literally ****ed up...

My studying patterns revolved around a lot of smart methods. I just over-did them for my own sanity purposes...

A lot of people notice a difference in marks/performance between assignments and exams, so you won't be the only one.

Maybe your exam technique could use some work (i.e. you know the info, but don't know how to utilise it under exam conditions).
