So I usually get a minimum of 7 hours before an exam but I've got a ****load of revision to do for Psychology today and was wondering how far I could push it.

How far have some of you pushed it and still performed well in your exams?

That's just crazy. How are you supposed to maintain concentration during the exam?

Yeah I was thinking go bed at 3, wake up at 9. Gives a couple of hours to get some more revision in between the morning routine.

if you do have a late exam it might be better to go to bed earlier and waker up earlier - if you do the revision on the day it might stick better?

You want to sleep as little as possible. It helps you absorb information.

Yeah that's what I did for my other exam but I didn't have as much to revise for that one as I do for this one. Going to sleep whilst in the middle of revision can disrupt it somewhat and the morning routine tends to get in the way a bit during the morning. Gotta get cleaned up, eat and all that and then eat again before you leave so you don't starve during the exam.

I dunno...

Trust me when I say this, it's worked on all three on my exams. Get a good nights sleep before your exam, at least 7 hours. When your asleep your brain processes and consolidates all the information you've learnt during the day. I've gone to bed worrying I won't remember the revision I've done and in the morning its in my mind. Don't do an all nighter, worst thing you can do.

Just go to bed as normal, do as much as you can and get up at about half 7 to do some revision in the morning. Sorted

I always get at least 6 hours. We don't want severe paranoid psychosis like our good man Siffre do we?

Edit: I meant Peter Trip! Looking good me in this exam

Just sleep for as little as you like as long as you feel comfortable in the morning. I'm fine on 4 hours.

I always go to bed at like, 9 or 10 and wake up at about 5-ish and hit the Red Bull about an hour before the exam to boost concentration. Usually works for me!

I had two exams yesterday (Thursday) and I didn't sleep on Wednesday night. I got through the day with Weetabix,Energy drinks and Coffee. In the exam I was able to actually remember my notes and essays word for word,I remembered names,quotes etc,which is something I have always had an issue with. It's a shame it took me this long to realise that cramming actually works for me. Before I used to always try and get 6/7hours of sleep the night before.

Pretty well. All my predictions came up! But I did feel completely unorganized and my arguments were often a little undirected but whatever. Hopefully enough for a B (which will give me an A). How about you?
