    Exams are dawning, and after looking at the dates of all my exams I have realized that the vast majority of them are at 9AM.
    This is a problem for me as I have always struggled to concentrate in the early morning lessons. I frequently notice that I make stupid mistakes when answering questions, particularly in Maths, when I am in this state.
    Have any of you ever tried taking something to make you more alert? I think this would help during the exams.

    Taking things is never a good idea I don't think personally. Why don't you try start waking up and working earlier? Get your body sued to working earlier in the morning?

    Coffee and exercise may help also. Both increase alertness and focus the mind. A more long term fix could be mindfulness meditation. The app "Headspace" may be of interest to you.
