Enjoying a class, but not getting a good grade

I really, really enjoy my biology class. I get so interested and caught up in the readings. The only problem is that my grades on the exams have been mediocre. In my other science courses (which have been really boring and uninteresting) I have scored much higher despite my complete lack of interest in the subject.

Does this make any sense? Shouldn't I be excelling in courses I enjoy and doing badly in courses I find stale and uninteresting?
