Apparently, photographic memory is not your strong point. You may have answered one or more questions correctly, but it's still not good enough. However, the fact that your photographic memory is weak doesn’t mean that you can’t improve it.
You’re not among the 10% who have exceptional photographic memory, but you can still be proud of yourself for having come so far since you did actually get quite a few answers right. Your result proves that you have the ability to grasp details, however, you must not let things distract you. Try this test again and you'll see that with a little more focus you can pass it with flying colors - good luck!
You are among the 10%
