Probably you may have asked yourself such question [What is the difference between 'test', 'exam' and 'quiz'?]...
or you may have the experience of using these words interchangeably...!
but the fact is:

an Exam or Examination is
 "  a written, spoken or particular test of what you know or can do:
    - Final exam/ mid-term exam;
      - entrance exam;
        - oral exam;
          - biology exam;
...\".

a quiz is "
      1- a short spoken or written test that is often taken without preparation:
          . pop quiz [A short test given to students without prior warning];

      2- a set of questions about a particular subject that people try to answer as a game or competition".
      

a test is "
      1- a set of questions or problems that are designed to measure a person's knowledge, skills, or abilities:
         . history test;
          . driving test;
           . IQ test.

       2- a careful study of a part of the body or of a substance taken from the body:
         .drug test;
          . pregnancy test".

******************************************
Test vs. Exam

- 'Tests' are to check your knowledge on the subject;
- a 'test' sums up what you've just learned;
- a 'test' sounds shorter and less important
- an 'exam' summarizes everything you've learned that semester

  "A test is usually on a certain topic while exams are focused on the entire semesters work. Also exams are, most of the time, worth a lot more in terms of contribution to the year's work as opposed to tests".

Thanks to my dear friend, Mohammad, for asking this question.
