Whenever I have an afternoon exam (RE yesterday and biology today) I keep falling asleep halfway through. I've tried eating sweet before the biology exam and I still fell asleep. I'm sleeping enough and eating & drinking plenty. It made me miss a question on RE and a 6 marker on biology
Any help is greatly appreciated

ahh, well. do you have any history or family history of narcolepsy? have you ever had problems like this before/is it sudden onset?

what i would do if i was you would be to have some very strong caffeine before the exam and not wear a jumper so to be purposefully cold and therefore not sleepy. if you have any family history of narcolepsy or its really sudden, i'd see a doctor asap.

Nope no history of it, I'm thinking of having a small energy drink before the exam and if that doesn't work see a doctor

DONT EAT A HEAVY LUNCH!! the exact happened to me before but I started having heavy breakfasts and light lunches and I was very lively for bio today. try it its basically coz when you eat the blood goes to ur stomach for digestion and ur left feeling light-headed. also I recommend having chewing gum before the exam too idk y but that helps me as well
