What things are the best thing to eat (and avoid) before an exam?!


Question: What things are the best thing to eat (and avoid) before an exam?

To have much concentration (and thinking) power and energy at the exam.

The exam will be in 9 to 10 hours after the next night. The exam will be rather technical and will take 3 full hours (i will nead every minute of it).

I only have these things (some things might be useless because lack of time to cook it) and i will hardly have time to purchase other things (maybe at the gas station but that's very expensive):

-banana (3 or 4)
-beans
-bread
-caramel candy
-chewing gums (mint taste)
-cheese
-cherry tomato's (20)
-cornflakes with dried red fruit
-cranberry
-custard
-dark chocolate (72% cacao)
-eggs
-fruit sirop (it says 'energy' on the label)
-mayo
-meat (for sandwiches)
-milk
-orange juice
-pasta
-peanuts
-porridge
-potato powder
-rice
-soup
-sweet chili sauce
-wallnuts

And are there things i have to AVOID? Like, i heard that bread makes sleepy.

Thx if you can answer seriousl

It doesn't really matter what you eat between now and that morning.. there is no "magic food" that'll make you a genius.. Just make sure the morning of, you have a good breakfast.

-cornflakes
-banana
-milk (in cereal)
-juice

OR

-porridge
-banana
-orange juice



it'll get your body up and running and you won't be focusing on your growling tummy. Keep it light though.. if you eat too much, there's a chance you will get a little lethargic.. stop at 1 bowl of cereal.. not 3. The porridge will keep you fuller longer.

And since you have it on hand, if I were you I'd toss some easy to eat foods in a baggie, in case you do get hungry during the test, and right after.

Toss the peanuts, walnuts and cranberries (if they're dried).. the carmel candies (if they're small) and break up the chocolate into bite sized pieces together and place into a baggie as a good trail mix. Nuts are good for the brain and it'll keep hunger, as I said, OFF your mind so you can focus on the task at hand.

Steer clear of cheese, though.. it contains tryptophan (yeah really). .which is the same stuff in turkey that makes you sleepy.

good luck!


I can only go by my experience. I like to have an egg sandwich, with cheese and mayo. Get plenty of rest the night before as well. Good luck

You need brain food! And that means protein, my dear. For an exam you need to get enough sleep the night before, eat a good breakfast with a balance of protein and complex carbs, and go light on the coffee or caffiene. Here are some ideas:

1. Scrambled eggs with cheese, orange juice, whole grain toast
2. Sandwich with meat and cheese on whole grain, or whole grain crackers, orange juice.
3. Cook your beans with meat in it and make rollups.
4. Tuna sandwiches
5. Fried egg sandwich with cheese

For snacks, avoid sugary treats and stick with nuts, fruit etc.


Yes, avoid the carbs unless it's the juice with natural sugar. Take plenty of protein to munch on: the cheese, walnuts, peanuts & boil a couple of eggs and chill ahead. That will get your brain food and power to think. Good luck.

The key to doing well before an exam is to study before the exam and not cramming the night before, get plenty of sleep and relax during the exam.

In terms of food, you don't want anything that will give you gas or make you feel uncomfortable. Avoid too much caffiene or avoid caffiene in general - that includes "energy" drinks. Those drinks will make you jittery and your mind will not be able to focus.

In terms of other foods, just eat a filling meal the night before and get plenty of sleep.

During the test, you won't have time to bring in food or any time to eat so don't distract yourself with food during the exam. If you're worried about the food during the exam, it just means that you are just using food as an excuse for not doing well.

Just take a few deep breaths and relax. Anxiety and doubt will only work against you.
