Yeah so I have an exam tomorrow morning and was wondering if redbull would make me concentrate better and wake me up? Anyone tried it before? Let me know :)

lol before my maths exam once, i drank a bit of red bull and i got one of the highest grades. It got me a bit 'jumpy' as i finished the exam and everyone's was still doing it, i started to make music with my pens.

I suggest you don't you will get a big rush and feel really excited. BUT after about an hour it will completely where off and you will have a BIG LOW and feel quite depressed. Also if you have an afternoon exam afterwards you will still be on a big low and feel quite depressed.

Good luck :)

I did it but took a sip when I got up, during getting ready and just before going.

Overall I only drank about half of it.

Before the exam I felt really focused, alert and awake.

The exam finished and I was fine, however in the afternoon I was on a bit depressive and it rapidly began to wear off making me feel not too good.

Red Bull does not give you better knowledge that is down to hard work and revision but I found it helped calm me down before and clear my head making it easier to think. Kind of like a placebo which makes you more confident and like you know more but that is just the mental effect it has on the brain

If anyone considers it, DO NOT drink the whole can in one. That is bad and will wear off in like 30 minutes. Take it at intervals and do not drink all off it.

I would recommend take it if you have a morning exam as it wakes you up.

So yeah, it seemed to work for me but I guess I will never know until I get my results back

No, our science teacher said stricktly not to drink it otherwise you'll be bouncing in your chair. Also, dom't have too many carbohydrates like pasta- it'll make you doze off.  :)
