  1. An absolutely ridiculous restriction. Hopefully it does get repealed.

    1. BLOOD SACRIFICE IS DEMANDED FOR THESE HENIOUS TRANGRESSIONS. DRINK BANNERS WILL BE FOUND AND WARM HARD JUSTICE SHALL BE SERVED VIA MY ROD OF RECKONING! REJOICE FOR THE BLOOD OF YOUR GODS SHALL QUENCH YOUR THIRST DURING YOUR EXAMS!!!!

  2. Waterloo was actually one of the only schools in Ontario not to have a food/drink ban during exams. If you really need a snack, you can ask to leave the room for a minute for it. If not having a coffee or gum is going to seriously impact your mental health, maybe you should contact accessibility services and you can go wright there :)

    1. There's been some proof though that having at least water in an exam will actually help you. So it's not entirely unfounded to want to keep it.

    2. Other than the caffeine boost, if you drink coffee while you study then it will help during the exam if you drink coffee too.

    3. 2a - you are allowed to have water in exams still. So what exactly is your point?

    4. Good to know 2c.
      I've been lucky and haven't had any exams during the exam period since it was initiated (even though I still believe it's silly).

  4. I had cookies and similar stuff to all my exams this term. I didn't know about the ban and no one said anything.

  5. God.. do you assholes really need to eat while doing a exam?
    It's like europeans making fun of westerns for eating 24/7 while doing anything like watching a movie, at a gaming event...Just stop eating people and write your goddamn exam

    1. I usually take a break after I am done with the exam, eat whatever I have and just do nothing for 5 minutes, then review the exam once or twice, and only after that leave.

  6. Seriously, I hate trying to concentrate and seeing/hearing/smelling people drinking or EATING beside me... Why do you need to eat/drink (aside from water) during an exam. You should just concentrate on writing your exam instead of sipping your coffee or whatever.
