Does "Worüber" not work in this instance? If not, why not?

The English translation is extremely confusing.

It's currently "What about my examination?" That's an idiom; it's something you say to prompt someone to tell you what is happening. You might say it if you thought they had forgotten it, or to get them to tell you anything they know.

It's similar to "What is happening (with/about) my examination?" or "What is going on with my examination?"

What is wrong with "Was ist los mit meiner Untersuchung?"

I think that would mean "What is the matter with my examination?"

What about "Was für meine Untersuchung?"

"Wie sieht es mit meiner Prüfung aus?" didn't work, but I think it makes sense as a translation...
