    If youre doing A levels, I dont think you should fast until after exams. This is going to affect the rest of your life so...

    I don't want to say whether you should fast or not but you need a high blood sugar level when revising so it's common to feel fatigued. You may want to have avocados for sahari as it has healthy fats which increase your powers of concentration.

    I got a lot of Muslim friends and what they tend to do during Ramadan is do the bulk of their revision whilst they aren't fasting e.g. After sunset. They usually end up staying awake till like 4am when they break the fast and revise till then

    I can concentrate just fine in revision/exams, in fact revision passes time until iftar for me so i feel less tired/hungry. But if you cant concentrate, then like Sajjjid said, i defo wouldnt recommend fasting. Just make up the days afterwards.

    It's not that hard for me to revise in Ramadan, I just do all my revision in night time and early morning when I'm not hungry

    Then don't fast. God isn't real anyway, so you efforts are meaningless and wasted.

    What I do is it I find it hard to concentrate at home as I'm constantly thinking "I'm fasting it's ok if I nap" but I force myself to go to the study centre in town where it's silent and you can't talk so you are forced to work. Yesterday, I went to bed at 3am; woke up at 8 to go to the study centre at 10 and worked solid until 4 at which point I came home and had a nap xD. I wouldn't recommend staying up late unless you can nap later on but I find napping really helps as you get so much more energy and then can concerntrate more on work.

    Stay awake after suhur or sleep but wake up nice and early. That way, you can do your work before you start to feel really hungry.

    I thought it would be like this as well but there's actually quite a bit of time in the day to do revision since the fasts are so long this year.
    I find that the time between Zuhr and Asr is best during the week to revise.

    Oh and make sure you get to sleep. Honestly, keep well rested, go to sleep in between taraweeh and suhoor and after fajr before school. :yep:

    Are you sure you're eating and drinking properly at suhoor?
