I have the most important exam of my life which is unfortunately in the middle of ramadan. This examination is called JEE ADVANCE. In this examination, i need to concentrate for two shifts of 3 hour paper. So, i am confused about what would be better either fast or eat. Many of my friends suggesting not to keep fast on that day as you will not be able to concentrate properly without food.
Am i allowed to do that without disobeying allah swt ?
If something has been made obligatory upon you it is best you do what Allah says. Who would you rather listen to Allah or your friends?
It is simple. Your surroundings and environment may impact you with all these individuals eating food but remember that your Creator is more important and His commands are more important than any test and all tests together whether they are life changing or not.
If it is best for you try to avoid contact with those who are eating or drinking as it may increase your hunger. I also have exams (GCSE's) during Ramadan and if I live till then In Sha Allah I ask Allah to help me with my fasts and exams and may Allah help you too.
Also, as the brothers said in the comments above fasting may be helpful try some fasts now and maybe get use to it.
Oh you who believe! Fasting is prescribed to you as it was prescribed to those before you, that you many learn piety and righteousness" (Q 2:183)
"Many of my friends suggesting not to keep fast on that day as you will not be able to concentrate properly without food." --> Is there any support for that statement?
