    A lazy student lol- I generally sleep better in the morning and struggle to sleep before midnight unless I'm already tired, so a 12 hour sleep is usually midnight-midday :P Can't do that when working in an office 9-5! No medication, wonder if its due to a weak bladder meaning I get up several times a night.
    Sounds as though you're oversleeping?

    So pub night has morphed into karaoke room hire with roller derby people with a minimum drinks order or about £25 each which down here is around 6 drinks. And having heared I've had 11 exams this week it has been decided that I am getting "seriously drunk".

    Hopefully you don't have any 9am classes/exams? God I used to hate those so much. :yucky:

    Your weak bladder could be partly responsible - it makes sense that if you keep waking up your sleep won't be as good quality so you need more of it. Have you seen a doctor?
    All my classes have finished and not had any exams so not now. And as for the bladder- several times and nothing helped.

    Probally lol but I usually find it very hard to get up on less than 11 unless I have somewhere specific to be at a particular time and more than a few days in a row of getting up on less than that and I find it hard to stay awake (used to fall asleep in school on 8/9 hours)

    Could you try starting with something you already know? like if you're doing A2 then look over AS level stuff. It might be that once you get started there you might be more able to work up to the new stuff?
    It's not revision but actively learning material for an essay. I'm in uni. Thanks for the advice though

    I spoke to my wife about my concerns about my future. Her response really really surprised me: study for a phd!

    I looked at some practice GRE papers (the exam you take to go to grad school). I got 6/10 on the math section first try, which was unexpected (especially as I was battling the voices at the same time). I originally replied to my wife that I'm way too stupid for a phd but this has kind of sparked my interest in the idea and made me think that maybe I can do it. Gonna give it a lot more thought and look at more practice papers but yeah...surprised myself.

    How'd you find the English sections?

    And yeah definitely will be thinking about it. Gotta make sure to factor my mental health into the thoughts though - stress often tips me very close to the edge so certainly don't want to rush into anything.

    Did quite well in the English sections - above average, though I can't remember the exact marks. Def factor those thoughts in - your mental health must always come first :hugs:

    Above average? nice! I haven't looked too far into it yet but the section where you put in the correct word(s) seem difficult. Though I guess it's something that can be worked on. but yeah, early days. I want to go over this test and see if I even stand a chance, I mean I'm fairly sure I lost a lot of IQ points over the past few years so I don't even know if I would pass. I learned from my undergrad: mental health always first!

    Have you recovered from your trip to Oxford?
