Hay fever impairs exam performance, study finds

The Education Guardian

Can I have my first class degree now please?

The charity Education for Health, which commissioned the study, said it showed that hay fever was not a trivial condition, and that young people and healthcare professionals should take the symptoms seriously.

Some of the problem is ascribed to antihistmaines that make patients drowsy. I would have said that not taking antihistamine (which is what I did) but spending at least 10% of the time blowing my nose was the real problem.
