I feel like I hit my peak too early and now I'm losing momentum. I know this sounds weird but basically I making lots of stupid mistakes like missing information from the question changing the signs for no reason in my calculations. Its making me frustrated.

Wake up early
Energy drinks (these don't work for everyone, so don't take them straight before an exam unless you're sure they benefit you.)
Keep hydrated
Have breakfast

The really small ones, taste horrible but they get the job done. Either 5 Hour Energy or the small Lucozade one (although I don't think they do that any more, at least not near the shop where I go to )

I've always found that keeping hydrated, having a healthy breakfast, waking up early and preparing yourself through last minute revision keeps me sharp. I've never drank energy drinks and I maintain a sharp mind throughout.

1) Go to bed early.
2) Wake up earlier than usual (so you don't rush if a problem occurs), makes you feel more alert.
3) Have a good breakfast, where you consume high protein and carbs like peanut butter and bread, nuts...
4) Have caffeine like green tea, energy drinks, coffee...
5) a cold morning shower always helps to. (if not wash your face with cold water!)
6) I'd also say a morning walk is a good idea (unless you already walk to school)

You have to get some sleep, at least 4 or 5 hours.
Have a really good breakfast.
Drink water.
Drink relentless or monster.
Eat snickers.
Have a shower.
Don't stress yourself too much during the hours leading up to the exam, you don't have to spend every minute revising, just keep cool.

Alcohol is better for this purpose to be blatantly honest. Mix it with water and you probably won't get caught.
can you just leave the thread if your going to be stupid.

If you're going to have energy drinks, you might as well have alcohol. You become hyperactive and miss out on important things just like majmuh24 did.
Im not going to have energy drinks before the exam thats just stupid but might have some when im studying

Perhaps you could try a cup of tea instead? Still a dosage of caffeine and it has a few pro's.

Not sure if your being sarcastic or actually offering advise.

Don't be a ****ing idiot. Yes, Maj missed put a question. However, that DOESN'T mean you can mock him and generally be an ******* about it. He probably feels bad enough about it. You need to grow up and realise that being a cocky little **** isn't going to get you anywhere.

OP, I'd advise ignoring AlphaNick, especially his comment about alcohol. Get lots of sleep and stay hydrated (water)

Wake up early day before exam, obviously revise day before exam but try to be active in some ways, have a healthy dinner full of protein, go bed early, wake up as naturally as possible, have a healthy breakfast (something like eggs is good), and try to remain stress free. Keep hydrated throughout. I personally do not benefit from having energy drinks

I'm not being cocky I'm just saying that drinking energy drinks is careless... I was joking about the alcohol obviously to bring about the metaphor of what you will be doing if you down an energy drink prior to the exam. It makes you careless, as exemplified earlier.
As I have painfully explained to you several time, missing the last page is not a result of carelessness, rather it's a case of misfortune. After speaking to a lot of people who missed it, as I did, the last two pages were not as simple to separate as the other pages in the paper, so when you flipped to the back, it did appear to be one page. Therefore, it was not carelessness and it's rude for you to assume it was, since you have no idea what circumstances caused a large proportion of people taking the exam to miss the last page.
