Not sure, but the number of mugs of coffee you drink should do the trick in terms caffeine intake.

Depends on how you take it. Anything with additives will just make you ill. In all honesty, as one with much experience in late nights and cramming, you're far far better getting into the habit of studying until 10pm then going to sleep and getting up at a reasonable time. Coffee doesn't replace sleep and you end up ill.

If you're intent on coffee as your route, just drink illy espresso. Make it with a proper espresso maker (doesn't have to be a machine- stove-top espresso makers are £25).

Jamaican blue mountain is the highest caffiene content I've come across and it's absolutely beautiful, although I imagine it's out of your price range.

I've tried "rocket fuel" it's disgusting, just get some red bulls if all you want is a kick up the arse.
Or buy some pure caffiene and some scales (you can severely overdose if you don't measure pure caffiene correctly)

I'd also agree with the sleep thing, studying on no sleep is just counter productive. You'll get more done with a full nights rest, reduced cognitive function due to lack of rem sleep coupled with caffiene and the associated side effects make studying or understanding anything difficult.

Taylors Hot Lava Java in Sainsburys (and presumably other supermarkets) is supposed to be pretty high caffeine and is also fairly nice coffee, but it's ground coffee for a cafetiere rather than instant. Nicer than instant though and Sainsburys also sell cheap cafetieres so it could be an option

Don't buy the rocket fuel instant coffee, it's disgusting.

Taylors Hot Lava Java in Sainsburys, I agree with this. It is £3.49 whilst that seems pricey in comparison to instant it is cheaper than buying one or two coffees in a coffee shop. I find that a bag of coffee will last me a month, having two or three a day and the occasional cup for a friend.

It is high in caffeine and is actually the nicest coffee I have had to date. Some coffees have a nasty bitter taste but Lava Java tasted smooth and almost chocolate like down to the last sip. I drink mine black with one or two sugars and I find that with Lava Java I don't need as much sugar as I usually use it to mask the bitterness. The high caffeine is an added bonus as you tend to drink less.

I never used to like coffee but I realised it is instant coffee that I dislike. You can not beat a good cup of real coffee. A cafetiere is a good investment if you enjoy coffee.

If you are going to be drinking something night after night during the revision period may I suggest you invest in something you will enjoy or drinking it will become a chore.

I reckon this one might be quite strong:

For those of you with a sensitive disposition, that website has naughty swear words on it.

Too much caffeine for Uni cramming made me jittery, palpitate and see flashing lights.

Though a strong cafetiere or double espresso gives me a kick start on a particularly dreary afternoon.
