    Fair enough, each to their own.

    OP is sitting A-level exams like me.

    We were told chewing gum could result in a warning, which could potentially lead to being reported, by your centre, to the exam board.
    Wow, many years ago when I sat my Highers out teachers suggested we take gum in or some fruit pastels or something to chew on to help us concentrate.

    Last year we were allowed to have food with us. I brought frozen grapes.

    Now we have a new exam officer (idk? name) who has gone full commando, saying if you do these things we'll get reported to the exam board.

    It's not how much you eat but what you eat. Some foods still make my stomach rumble but others don't. You should experiment.

    For example, most cereals don't stop my stomach rumbling in the morning but porridge does

    Well the same food doesn't work for everyone. Try something new everyday (oops, Sainbury's cliche) until you find something that works.

    Don't go for carbs, something really satiating.
    Like somebody said here, a banana, and I would definitely go for some butter and some dark chocolate.
    Apples are also filling and refreshing.
    I remember eating coco pops and milk before my exam last emester and my stomach was singing "Ode to joy":ashamed:

    This happened a lot in my FP1 exam and the sports hall was really silent as well so everyone could hear it . It also happened in another maths exam but it wasn't as obvious

    I had my first exam today (I'm yr10) and they gave us a bottle of water and a banana when we went in I was so happy! Instead of answering questions I could just sit there and eat a banana

    Yo,

    Recently for all my exams my stomach has grumbled really loudly and for a long time and its really driving me nuts so I drink all the water in my bottle :lol: even though I eat a freakishly large amount of food I always rumble hahaha

    Does anyone else have this issue and how do they fix it? :lol:
    At least at my school, it happens to everyone so I wouldn't worry. It used to happen to me quite a lot too.

    This is what I do to stop the rumbling:
    - eat lots of food that will give you long lasting energy (bananas, pasta)
    - wash hands before eating food
    - eat slowly
    - breathe through the mouth
    - don't wear a belt
    - sit up straight
    - go to the toilet
    - let off any excess gases out before the exam

    If in the exam your stomach rumbles:
    - breath through the mouth deeply

    Not by itself :laugh: with some fruits and chocolate
    I once added melted chocolate in some peanut butter with a bid of honey and I got the best fudge ever :sogood:

    This always happens to me! It's made even worse that there are only 6 people in my year, (my school opened this august) so everyone can hear it I tend to just drink a ton of water but I think everyone is just used to my strange stomach now

    6 people in your year? Do you live in a desolate town?
