IB exams revision - how to overcome tiredness and sleepiness? . watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi guys,

    I'm doing the pain-inflicting preparation for the exams now, but the problem is I want to sleep too often.

    I've been able to do 6-7 hours of pure revision per day, but would like to max it to 10, but sometimes (either in the afternoon or evening) I really want to sleep.

    Any advice?

    (I know about coffee - but is it really helpful? I drink it and still want to sleep)

    Anything else?


    Fatigued IB student.

    Off to sleep for an spell....

    eat complex carbs for breakfast and drink green tea. coffee just makes you tired afterwards. take 5 minute breaks every two hours.
