Im taking Mcat in a few months but Ramadan has begun and the lack of caffeine during the day is making it hard. Are there any tips you guys have for fasting and studying? thanks
A lot of my friends fasted during Ramadan and studied.
Some tips they had:
Do not go outside during the day- too hot, you lose too much water.
Sleep and study in an air conditioned room.
Drink tons of water when you aren't fasting
Importantly they went to bed eary (before breaking the fast), woke up to eat, went back to bed, and then woke up in the morning, ate before the fast began, and then go straight to studying. This way you maximize the amount of time studying while you have food in your stomach.
Alternatively a lot of my friends studying for the mcat chose not to fast. Some of them only choosing to drink water, some eating full meals.
