somebody said that they had 8 exams and the first 6 were in Ramadan so they fasted but of course didnt for the last two and they got higher marks in the exams that they fasted on. Has anyone else had this sort of experience?

I don't have to fast so I can't really say, however I do know that I don't perform my best if I feel really full, so if I do eat before an exam it'll be a small snack.

No. Dehydration doesn't improve anything.

Well kinda because you start to metabolize the fat/carbs/protein in your own body which triggers the release of protein BDNF + amyloids in your brain upon autophagy which recycles the old cells to create new bigger ones in order for your body to be more efficient. Hope this helps.

Yep, I definitely have! One of the greatest things that come alongside such a blessed month is that your mind is automatically more focused, making revising more effective and making memory better. Of course, you have to revise as well, Allah gives and provides for us all, just make sure you put in the effort too. He looks at our situation 👀. If you’ve already sat the exams, or are in the process of sitting them and you’re worried about some that you’ve just completed or are yet to be sat (like me 😫) , don’t lose hope, Allah is there for us all- turn to him and ask him for help, he’s capable of anything.Hope that helps,Remember me in your du’as x
