    I have an exam tomorrow. Unfortunatly I go into "coasting" mode. I know that I'll pass this exam (only need 40%) so I'm not stressing as much as I should. I'll regret this in the morning.

    So laid back, I'm practically horizontal - until about 24 hours before the exam, when I go into meltdown and revise like a woman possessed without stopping for food or sleep.

    The only exception to this is one of my finals, where I followed the above pattern to start with - and then at 9pm, with the exam at 9am the next day, I thought 'sod this for a lark' and went down the pub instead.

    Actually, I study 2-3 days before the exam, but i end up getting good grades anyways.
    I prefer to study right before the exam that way i won't forget it right away.
    And on the day of the exam, i wake up super early. Let's say the exam is at 9am, i wake up at 3am to start studying again.
    If i study a week before the exam, i end up forgetting most of it.

    I need pressure to memorise things so I procrastinate until about 12 hours before the exam and then stare at the book for hours wondering why it won't go in!

    I can't focus unless I'm under immense pressure, hence why I'm posting here instead of doing the 2500 word essay due in tomorrow. It's not 3am yet so I'm still feeling no immediate concern.

    Once 6am rolls around though I'll have half a dozen cans of energy drink in me and be twitching like an epileptic in a disco. I also have a tendency to punch the furniture when the words won't come to mind.

    I don't think about it. I've got into a really bad habit of not revising or anything, just turning up on the morning of the exam and hoping all goes well. I don't know what's wrong with me... In my AS's last year everyone was sitting in my sixth form revising and I just couldn't handle it and went out to sunbathe instead (?!)
