Elevated heart rate (from coffee) helps in exams?

i am in college and a friend told me when he drinks coffe he has elevated heart rate so more blood goes to his brain and he thinks better/faster.
Is that true? some times it happens to me too when I drink coffe with empty stomach but I never though about using it in exams at my college.
