Brain food before exam?Watch
i mean will stuff like caffine; maby a red bull help?
And i've heard bananas release energy slowly which helps you remain energized thoughout the exam.
I've even heard that not eating before an exam, and feeling hungry can help stay alert
but yeah, i dunno! , any suggestions??
A big bowl of cereal or pasta before your exam is quite good, because both keep you going for a long amount of time, rather than just giving you a sugary high.
Directly before your exam eat a bananna or orange, seriously, it has really helped me through my 1st year medical exams so far! Anything with a high glycaemic index before an exam will really help as the sugar is available straight away and hopefully will keep you a little more alert.
Oh, and keep very very hydrated, the last thing you want to do for your brain is deprive it of water!
Search google for some, it seriously can help brain power having a direct and quick source of sugar!
Complex food sources such as proteins and fibres should do the trick. Half a tuna sandwich on wholeweat does the trick nicely. Had nothing but an apple before my business exams today, stomache was rumbling throughout!
Eat healthily, do excercise and sleep lots.
Don't go researching about some freakin' banana smoothie with complex carbohydrates, just eat healthily.
It makes no difference at all IMO.
