Quicker than quick, that's what they say,
Add an E and thirds go away,
Lose my first and a test comes to play,
What am I? Can you solve and convey?

Good luck!

Hint:

Keep me the same, you'll be hungry a day.

You are

FAST

Quicker than quick, that's what they say

Fast is a synonym of quick, perhaps even very quick

Add an E and thirds go away

Feast: Not sure entirely, but perhaps during a feast you don't follow the rule of thirds?

Lose my first and a test comes to play

AST scrambled = SAT

Hint:

If you fast, you don't eat and will be hungry!

  • $\begingroup$ For the "Add an E and thirds go away" clue, if you add an E, you get "feast", and taking away the third letter gives you "fat". Good job! $\endgroup$ May 8, 2023 at 15:01

Are you a

RACE

Quicker than quick, that's what they say,

The quicker than quick will win the race.

Add an E and thirds go away,

I see a little play here. Add an E and Third S - Go away
Add an ERACE, Put third letter as S - Gives ERASE i.e. Go away

Lose my first and a test comes to play,

ACE test
