"It's common practice for students to try to catch up on neglected reading and pull all-nighters in preparation for exams," says Adrinda Kelly, senior editor of The Princeton Review, a leading provider of test preparation, educational support, and college admissions services.

Students who reported chewing gum during the exam received a mean score of 90; students who chewed the whole pack of 5 gum before the exam received a mean score of 86; while those who chewed no gum at all received a mean score of 60.
