A study shows hangovers don’t affect test scores.
According to a study conducted by researchers at Boston University and Brown University, consuming alcohol to the point of a hangover does not affect test scores the next morning. Participants in the study scored same on a practice Graduate Record Exam and a quiz on a lecture after a night of drinking, than they did without drinking any alcohol. However participants did show a slowing in reaction time.
Students will drink to the point of having a hangover before a test, but the study may serve to assure parents that their children will not fail out of school if they drink.
