    Mine's at 9am. Do you think I should forget the idea?
    9am tomorrow?

    How much work are you doing? Do you have a supply of caffeine and good energy sources?


    I'm the expert on all nighters

    I'm currently all-nightering now. Dunno how I'm going to make it through college, though. :mmm:
    I used to get the mic taken out of me for being 'gormless' in 6th form, I suggest you try it. You just stare into space all day but you can work and stay awake. :yep:

    Sort of - I think I'm doing pretty well if I do say so myself. Less than 3 hours til the exam I'll stop at 7, get ready for school, maybe half half an hour of cramming. It's maths though, 'cramming' isn't squishing knowledge into your brain, it's just practising over and over.

    I'm on my third cup of tea since 10 lol. I had a phase where I was biting my nails for like an hour on and off (I gave that up two years ago!! ) but I feel really awake and I'm glad I didn't resort to caffeine tablets. Tea is quite low on caffeine (so I've heard). Or maybe it's all the Nutella keeping me up?

    I used to go to school from 9-4 then work 6-10 for most of fifth and sixth year. I'm trying to remember how I fit the all-nighters in now.

    I'm like the "sleep deprived queen". Lol.

    I tend to avoid caffine/sugar rushes, they make me crash and burn! I fell asleep in my first college class, not fun..

    I'd suggest cheesy pop music. I swear, I've had Bad Romance on repeat all night.

    Isn't it annoying when you can't sleep, and then suddenly feel tired at 3am?!?

    Haha, then I'd have to be the king.

    Caffeine is fine for me, I'm addicted and used it to though so that might be why. Suger rushes suck, eat protein! It's the best for keeping awake. The afternoon classes used to last forever for some reason, did you get caught sleeping? Once in front of a lecture of about 400 people, the professor anounced for everyone to look at this girl who was fast asleep and then he told her mate next to her to wake her... It was so funny!

    Yea tea contains hardly any:depends how strong you make it though. I use coffee when I'm hard-core cramming. Get some fresh air if you get a lift/drive to school as that might help. And if you're feeling great now you might be about to crash, keep optimistic even if you physically feel like crap. I hated maths revision, I'm much better at getting facts in my head.

    Ooh sports anime! You wouldn't happen to know of one that was broadcasted in the 90's and was based around football? It use to take them like 3 episodes to get to the other side of the pitch in a match, I can't remember what it was called though, proper nostalgic memories.

    I'm pulling one now, just to sort out my sleeping pattern. I never pulled one before an exam because it's hard enough to concentrate in an exam as it is, quite often do it with coursework though.

    Bless - once you get your A levels and get your cute little bottoms to university

    I promise - even the ones of you who would "never" pull an all nighter will be making best friends with a can of red bull on the eve of a deadline over and over and over again...

    Like others have said, sleep = concentration, I went to bed at 12 and woke up at 6 feeling wide awake. I should be going to lessons before my exam but I'm gonna stay at home and try doing two practice past papers before I go meet my demise.
