What students eat and drink in the run up to exams can affect their performance. Whilst it is necessary to put in the ‘hours’ studying, it is still important to eat healthily, get fresh air and exercise to help keep a clear and focused mind.
Even though the brain is one of the smallest organs in the body, it still manages to use up to 20% of the energy we need every day! So, keeping a steady supply of glucose (through food) to the brain will help with concentration during both your study and exam times.
