please dont miss out on fasting just because of exams its not a valid reason to not fast. I am also doing my gcses this year and i am going to fast. Plus you will recieve more blessings. It won't be that hard, you just need to eat the right foods and you will be fine.

Make sure you drink plenty of water during sehri (pre-dawn meal) and after iftar (breaking the fast). During sehri, eat a balanced meal containing foods rich in carbs and fibre (such as rice, vegetables, wholemeal bread. Make sure to get your protein too via chicken/fish etc. Don't try to eat too much though as this will make you feel more hungry and weak during the day.

I fasted during most of my GCSEs and to be honest, it wasn't too much of a difference. Try your best to fast and pray - have faith that everything will work out.

All the best

its really important to drink A LOT of water before you fast and after you break your fast. You need to eat a lot of foods that give you energy, so foods that has glucose and plenty of carbs like pasta, potato etc..
Dont eat a lot of fatty foods and fried foods. Also eat a lot of fruits and stuff like nuts and yogurts. You can google it as well to see what you can eat and shouldnt eat

If you're really worried then maybe practise fasting a couple days before exams start just so you get used to it.

yup i'll try bc you know i might as well. i usually don't really eat anything during sehri and just drink a glass of water and then attack the food at iftar but tbh i don't think that's a very good strategy bc although i kept all the fasts last year, i didn't do much as i was so tired the whole day.

Bro I gave my IGCSEs last year while fasting and as I live in Pakistan we had to do iftar during the paper where we were given juices and dates. Leaving that aside I'd argue that it's good cuz you get a feeling of satisfaction and a belief that Allah would help you through
