If you want to succeed in doing the exam, it helps bring water to drink while working on exam. A UK study found that drinking water brought into the exam room to improve test scores.
Researchers found that students who bring drinking water into the exam room got an average 5% higher than students who do not carry water. Research conducted by the University of East London and Universuty of Westminster is also found that older students are more likely to bring drinking water into the exam room.
The researchers studied 447 psychology students at the University of East London. 71 of them were foundation year or a base class to prepare for college, another 225 people were first year students and 151 the rest are second-year student.
Among all study participants, only 25% that brings drinking water into the exam room. Of these, older students are more likely to bring drinking water. As many as 31% the second year students to bring drinking water, while the number of first year students and students of the base class that carries water only as much as 21%.
“Bringing water into the exam room is a very inexpensive way for students and teachers to be able to help get better exam results,” said Dr. Mark Gardner of the University of Westminister.
After calculating the students’ academic skills by examining test scores, the researchers found that test scores of students who drink water base class increased to 10%. Conclusion This study describes the importance of drinking during the exam, especially for younger students.
An increase of 5% also experienced first-year students and an increase of 2% experienced a second year student who brought water to drink. Among the entire group, there was an increase of 4.8% on the value of students who bring drinking water.
“Consuming the water appears to have physiological effects on brain function resulting in increased performance. Water consumption also can reduce the anxiety that has a negative effect on the ability of a test,” said Dr Chris Pawson of the University of East London.
This finding suggested to the college or school to always provide drinking water for the students to improve academic achievement. sources detik.com
