In some cases, yes. Universities and colleges around North America are reporting an increase in prescriptions for stimulant drugs used to treat ADHD; some people fake symptoms for the stimulant medication which can allow them to study longer and stay more focused.

How do you fake ADHD?

I am reluctant to answer this question as the most common reason to 'fake ADHD' is to get your doctor to prescribe medication for those with the disorder. Here are first a couple words of caution: (1) if you get caught, you will be in a lot of trouble. Most ADHD medications are controlled substances (i.e., like narcotics) so getting them dishonestly is not a light matter by law, and (2) ADHD medications affect those with and without ADHD differently. In fact, a lot of the focus that non-ADHD takers feel from the medication is a placebo effect, and it makes them very energetic/hyperactive, whereas for those with ADHD is corrects an improper neurotransmitter balance, making them more normal (i.e., calmer and normally focused). Your question seems aimed at the surface symptoms of ADHD. Behavioral symptoms. Which are only visible manifestations of cognitive deficits that cause them. All that hyperactivity, lack of focus, and inappropriate behavior you see from your peers with the disorder are a reflection of the underlying problems they are trying to cope with (or not, depending on how they handle the disorder). If you want to know how to 'fake it' look up behavioral symptoms of ADHD. But honestly, you will not fool an actual psychiatrist (who takes ADHD diagnosis seriously) because the questionnaires for testing the disorder are meant to test the cognitive deficits, which are hard to fake.
