    On my way to school people smoke a lot (adults).
    So I try not breathe in the smoke, but I cant help it sometimes.
    Sometmes I see 1 person smoking and when I hold my breath and walk past them, I then see another person smoking right in front of me, just when I have walked past the first person.
    I have got my gcses coming up and im pretty intelligent so I hoped it wouldnt affect my brain which would affect my gcses?

    It shouldn't do, no
    You'll be fine, but you could ask them not to, because it's a little selfish (and irresponsible imo) to smoke in the face of a non-smoker

    Good luck for you exams

    Passive smoke won't affect your intelligence - it just gives a bad smell as you pass by. Unless you actively inhale loads of it.

    Lots of v clever (though one may argue v stupid in other ways) people smoke, you'll be fine.
    I get the smell may make you feel dizzy though, prompting you to worry.
