    I ended up pulling two during my first year of uni, and actually did quite well on those 2 pieces of coursework. I wouldn't recommend it though, because at about 4 in the morning you pass into a stage of delirium and don't know what's going on... :mmm:

    Well when you know something needs to be done, and you have a deadline, you basically HAVE to do it. My advice is, if you do have to pull one, do it with friends who are also pulling an all-nighter, then you'll help to get each other through it..

    You know, throughout school and college I use to pull all nighters all the time to get homework/revision finished. I may have even done a couple right at the start of first year but now I just can't.

    The stupid thing is, I can doss around in the internet all through the night and morning but as soon as research or a textbook in involved I suddenly come over with a heavy tiredness that I just can't shake, no matter how bad I want to study. Due to this, I haven't been able to complete an all nighter in what must be a year now.

    I'm planning to tonight, not because I have loads of work to do, but just because I'm in a horrible cycle right now where I can't sleep till about 5 in the morning and wake up halfway into the afternoon. This has happened a few times before and I find one way of getting out of it is just not sleeping for the whole night, that way I'll be knackered and hopefully fall asleep in the early evening the next day and won't wake up too late!

    Done it a few times and I managed to get really good grades but I think it was a fluke. If your behind in work you should probably try to work till late and go sleep for a few hours then wake up early to start revision again. That's what I'm currently doing. When I pulled an all nighter before my Economics exam I went through all my notes and practised the multiple choice and essay questions but around 5am I thought I would take a little break to rest my head. 10 minutes later I got up and I couldn't remember anything. I had to get my friends to tell me all they knew about Economics about 3 hours before the exam. In the end I somehow got 92/100 ums but it was a complete fluke since everything I revised last minute was in the exam so I was unbelievably lucky.

    I don't normally do an all nighter. I just go to sleep at normal with essays partly done and wake up two hours earlier the next day to finish it, 4am ish... Normally leaves me 10 mins to get ready for school but I got As on all these essays. Wouldn't recommend it though as after a few of these mornings I was like a moody silent zombie floating round school haha
