When we first read this, we did find it a bit hard to believe....
Mainly because from our experience drinking alcohol usually ends up with us not being able to remember anything from the night before.
The University of Exter found that people who drink alcohol after studying information are more likely to remember what they had learnt. The study had two groups of people, one which would be drinking and one which would stay sober (we know which group we'd rather be in).
They got each group to learn a set of words and suprisingly the group who had been getting turnt performed better than the sober group.
So the moral of the story hear is next time you have a big study session make sure to partaaay straight after!
