Students who go drinking night before 'don't get lower exam marks'
Apr 21 2010 From Mirror.co.uk
Students who binge drink the night before exams do not end up with lower marks, a surprise report showed yesterday.
Experiments showed booze did not hit long-term memory or affect recently learned material although it did slow reaction times and worsen mood states.
Prof Jonathan Howland, who led the project in Boston, Mass, said: "The team was surprised by the results as some earlier studies found occupational performance was impaired the day after intoxication."
