    I know most of you stay up till "late" to revise, trust me I've been there, however, I want to try and sleep early today as my exam's in the morning tomorrow at 9!

    Do some of you sleep early if you have exams in the morning?
    if so, what time?

    I'm thinking, sleeping early will keep me calm!

    yh sleeping early is good and sleeping till late with an exam in the morning is quite bad because you can fall asleep in the exam!

    also it helps you to calm down and having a good nights sleep is vital for an important exam.
    oh AND good luck for the exam..xx

    I try to sleep around 11.30-12.00 on the night before the exam. Wake up around 8 AM.

    Personally I need a lot of sleep, so the night before the exam I unwind, watch my favourite movie and am asleep by about 10:30 to get up at 7 ...
    Good luck with your exams!

    The less sleep you get the worse. Today I did an all nighter and for my Psychology OCR exam I left section A which is worth 20 marks out of the 60 available due to the fact that I simply forgot about it (brain was dead). I've already ruined the chance to get an A.

    Normally go to sleep quite early on the day before morning exams (well, I did at GCSE anyway, now not so much at A-Level!). Went to bed at around quarter past 12 and woke up at 7 for an exam that started at 9. Didn't do too badly- heck, I even surprised myself by answering a question correctly the 2nd time round which I initially looked at it and thought 'how the hell do I answer this?' :p: Generally though, I think it's best to get a good night's sleep i.e. 7 and a half hours or more before a morning exam.

    I'll probably go around 12-1ish, then have a redbull or similar in the morning.
    Got an exam at 9 too.
    If I go any earlier than 12, I won't be able to sleep. I'm used to 3-4am bedtimes now.

    I go to sleep around midnight-ish if I have an exam in the morning. Then I wake up at 7am to catch the 8am bus to get to college for my exam at 9am. It's only 7 hours sleep (sometimes less), but I can easily function on that amount of sleep. When it's around exam season I just seem to be running on adrenaline. I've finished them all now though, and i'm shattered now it's over.
