if you do have a late exam it might be better to go to bed earlier and waker up earlier - if you do the revision on the day it might stick better?
Yeah that's what I did for my other exam but I didn't have as much to revise for that one as I do for this one. Going to sleep whilst in the middle of revision can disrupt it somewhat and the morning routine tends to get in the way a bit during the morning. Gotta get cleaned up, eat and all that and then eat again before you leave so you don't starve during the exam.
Trust me when I say this, it's worked on all three on my exams. Get a good nights sleep before your exam, at least 7 hours. When your asleep your brain processes and consolidates all the information you've learnt during the day. I've gone to bed worrying I won't remember the revision I've done and in the morning its in my mind. Don't do an all nighter, worst thing you can do.
I did an all nighter once for A2 Psychology, last exam wanted it over with and tbh I didn't revise much during the day so the night i revised like mad didnt wanna sleep and spoil the info in my brain so i went straight to the exam hardcore feeling like **** but just eat a big brekky i was k enough energy
thing is i kept resting during the day so i felt guilty for not revising but i guess my problem is i just knew too much
I had two exams yesterday (Thursday) and I didn't sleep on Wednesday night. I got through the day with Weetabix,Energy drinks and Coffee. In the exam I was able to actually remember my notes and essays word for word,I remembered names,quotes etc,which is something I have always had an issue with. It's a shame it took me this long to realise that cramming actually works for me. Before I used to always try and get 6/7hours of sleep the night before.
Pretty well. All my predictions came up! But I did feel completely unorganized and my arguments were often a little undirected but whatever. Hopefully enough for a B (which will give me an A). How about you?
