On my way to school, I could buy an energy drink or a quick caffeinated drink from Starbucks - would this be bad since I have an exam straight after?

Caffeine can help you feel more awake but too much can cause anxiety, and physical symptoms. Plus, you may have a caffeine crash. The best thing is a proper night’s sleep before and have a caffeinated drink if you need it

I'd be careful, maybe just stick to a can of Coke or such or 1 basic coffee.

Having seen someone's body have a massive caffeine crash in an exam... yeah, not for me.

One wouldn't kill you but not too many or you risk doing a Will.

tbf i think it depends on if you've already consumed caffeine in the day and how much caffeine the drink contains
