    When will your

    When will your exam begin?

    When does her exam begin?

    Do both the sentences convey the same meaning?

    Re: When will your

    Do you think 'your exam' and 'her exam' can mean the same?

    Now I think, I understood.

    Your can be used when we ask question face to face and her is used for a specific person when he or she is away.

    Am I right in my interpretation?

    Re: When will your

    There is no significant difference between:
    When does your exam begin?
    and
    When will your exam begin?

    There is no significant difference between:
    When does her exam begin?
    and
    When will her exam begin?

    The difference in your sentences is that you use "your" for one and "her" for the other.

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
