In brief: Absolutely.

Lack of sleep is one of those things that can make us forgetful and not retain memories as well.
That's why they say to get a good night sleep before a test - it helps consolidate memories and facts. If you haven't slept well in 2 weeks, you will feel tired, sluggish, and not as quick mentally.
