Not really possible to guess usefully, d. If someone has properly diagnosed Bipolar Disorder ( diagnosed by a proper psychiatrist or psychologist after a proper assessment ) then its likely to be a long-lasting disorder. If for over 2 years a person has not run into serious problems of that sort despite taking no treatment for it, I would wonder whether they really did have properly diagnosed bipolar disorder ( this must be done by a shrink and not just a GP ).
Then, most of us find we become anxious and restless around exams, and that's very normal. And one's mood may be a bit jittery and changeable until the exams are over. That's normal, and not likely to be a disorder.
Now, Dagga, is a really bad idea. It has been shown by good research that especially in some of us whose brains are already a bit vulnerable ( which might be the case if one was earlier diagnosed, rightly or wrongly, as Bipolar ), Dagga can cause brain samage and can lead to more unpleasant disorders as well as difficulties concentrating. It would be wise to gradually wean yourself off the dagga. And also, it's hard to properly assess anything else that might be causing problems while someone is taking sugniicant amounts of dagga, and much easier to do so when you're off it.
