    I'd just sleep like 3hours or so, set your alarm, take some caffeine an hour before you leave. Take a caffeine drink.

    And cram your ****ing head full of info. It works. You don't need sleep imo.
    I don't drink coffee

    So did I. Was a good nap but had to wake up to revise. I thought you're allowed water at least o_o if I don't drink my skin would crack.

    I don't either my friend as I dislike it. I have been using this to help me get through exams or other periods of very little sleep and it works great for me! I am assuming it is the caffine, but since I don't take caffeine otherwise maybe it isn't and it is something else in this product? I don't know. It just works is all I know. I tried to drink coffee before even though I dislike it to see if it would wake me up but it doesn't. So maybe it isn't the caffeine. w/e.

    Just buy this for future exams I suggest -

    Yes, it is £23 for the 720g one but it lasts age. I've been using this pack for a year (yes guys, I'm not using it before work outs lol). Helps so much on exam periods though it is crazy.

    Good luck with your exam either way!

    I've got Chemistry tomorrow and I always have crippling anxiety the night before. Good thing it's an afternoon exam so I've got plenty of time.

    I have an exam in 9 hours and i'm doing an all nighter. I leave all my revision to the last minute, despite having 2 years to revise (hahahahaha) and i'm overloaded on caffeine atm. I know it's wrong but i'll do anything to help me retain information. Good luck to you anyways, hope it works out for you!
    what exams you got?

    I'm suppose to be sleeping but tomorrow is my exam day and it's so annoying. I just want time to roll by ASAP is that too much to ask anyone have this problem every time they have an exam

    Omg story of my life..
    I've heard that camomile and spearmint tea is good for relaxation and sleeping
    Also, I tend to get uncomfortable laying in bed for a long time so I get out and go to the kitchen and drink ice cold water which cools me down
    And...I find that going on a long walk helps you to sleep later on (well for me anyway) so make sure you take breaks from revision
    I know this is a late reply but good luck with your exams!
    I had this problem which went on for like 3 nights in a row and it was the worst!

    I try to sleep when it comes to the night before exams, but I struggle. Not just with exams, but when it comes to an event in college or doing something I'm nervous about, the night before I get hallucinations. Sounds like I'm on drugs I know, but it's a thing. It's when I'm almost asleep and I'm in the wakey-but-almost-asleep stage. I see black shapes of spiders, webs, insects in front of my face, dangling over me, behind me. I always run and turn the light on, run around the house, stand still. It always happens the same way - I move so fast I don't remember jumping out of bed and turning the light on. Then, I can't get to sleep because although I know its not real, I still have the image in my head.

    I now have an even bigger fear of spiders, insects and everything else I was already scared of.

    But despite that, I was fine. I sleepy in exams, yes, but I passed. So have hope.
