    So... you're about to enter the exam hall. What do you take, caffeine or a chill pill?

    I am curious, what would you benefit more from? Caffeine will speed your working up so you finish the paper earlier, however chill pills relax your brain and may clear your mind making it easier to answer the questions.

    What are your thoughts?

    I wouldn't take either. I wouldn't benefit from either of them.

    I don't need caffeine because I get enough sleep and I revise therefore I know I can finish the paper in time.

    I don't need chill pills because I revise so I know how to answer the questions. Also my school did tonnes of mocks with us, so the real thing felt like a mock therefore I wasn't too nervous.

    I see what you mean but surely a bit of drugs would have helped a bit

    By 'chill pill' do you mean a benzo of some description?

    Caffeine gives a small perk if you are sleepy but it not a natural refresh and cam make you feel edgy. Try drinking some coffee and you will see.

    I'm a bodybuilder so I take pre-workout which is basically the same but cleaner.
