    I agree omg :afraid: - an exam on an all-nighter is the worst thing ever. I answered questions that I didn't revise for for some inconceivable reason! :cry2:

    I would say no.

    It's better to try and use the time you are awake in the day more wisely (which is difficult, I know!) rather than tosacrifice your sleep and work at a fraction of your normal efficiency - you've got to remember that the exam tests not only your knowledge but your alertness and your ability to think - two things that are impaired by a lack of sleep. I think all nighters are for emergencies only where you literally know zilch, not enough to pass. (There is a compromise, to wake up earlier than usual and do some last minute cramming, so that you get at least some sleep).

    Okay, okay. I'll try to avoid an all-nighter if I can. :getmecoat:

    You don't know how tempting it's been, though. :emo:






    But going through what you went through, Sins, would probably be like a nightmare. :afraid:
