Academic Advice Service's Top Tips

The RUSU Advice Service have put together these top tips about how to revise effectively so check them out!

Food is important!

What you eat and drink can influence both your physical and mental performance. To boost memory, mood and concentration in the run up to exams try some of these:

Oily fish Good for brain function, the heart, joints & general well being
Blueberries Powerful anti-stress food, can improve memory & learning ability
Porridge Packed with fibre to sustain you throughout the morning
Bananas Powerful energy booster, also shown to improve your mood
Seeds Pumpkin and sunflower seeds contain a rich mix of protein, omega fatty acids and B vitamins
Water Stay hydrated to avoid dizziness, fatigue and poor concentration
Whole grain foods Boost your concentration and help keep you mentally alert

See the RUSU Advice Service’s Brain Food Chilli recipe. Catherine, the Women’s Part-time Officer, also has a great time saver for the mornings: Overnight Oats.

You can also look back to the Student Money Week recipes to give you some cheap inspiration to make sure you are eating well throughout exams.
