we're always told to get 'our 8 hours sleep' and that, but is it really necessary?
just some thoughts really. I have 6 hours worth of exams tomorrow so would it be more beneficial for me to sleep, or cram in some more information considering that i won't be sleeping much anyway?

From past experience, it is much better to sleep. What good will it do you to sit 6 hours worth of exams mentally and physically exhausted?
Even if you do manage to baws your exams that way, you will feel horrendous afterwards and it will take you a while to recover.

That's pretty much the same as me to be honest, also if I go to sleep less than 4 hours before I'm due to wake up I find I often wake up about 8 hours later having slept through my alarm, hence why I'm up to type this now. I reckon I've had 9 hours sleep altogether this week and don't feel to bad and I'll sleep like a log tomorrow night, once Friday's here though I'll have finished uni

I have a weird sleep tolerance.
7+ hours. Feel perfectly fine.
4-6 hours. Feel tired but once I've showered and ate I'm fine.
< 4 hours. Feel awful and miserable all day.
All-nighter. Feel absolutely fine through the day and sleep normally the next night.
So my rule is, if I'm still awake at around 3:30am, I just stay up.
