Fruit Boosts Brainpower

A group of GCSE Science pupils were treated to smoothies and fruit on the morning of their very important exam. A recent study has shown that blueberries in particular are thought to help improve concentration in exams, and so our eager budding scientists were ready and willing to test the theory.

The smoothies (containing the all-important blueberries!) as well as loose bananas and raspberries were provided by the science department. The girls thoroughly enjoyed their fruit & fruit smoothies as it helped to calm their nerves & gave them an extra boost before their exam. The success of this fruity idea has highlighted to the girls the importance of eating before an exam and hopefully it will be reflected in their results.
