    Unless IB people are different the recommended amount is 8.5 - 10 for 12-18 year olds . . . http://www.helpguide.org/life/sleeping.htm
    though to be honest 7+ is fine

    Oh gosh I wish I could get 10 hours of sleep a night that would be amazing. But generally most IB students get like 7 or so, I think.

    IB is the worst. It limits your sleep and makes you want to sleep even more. Probably get about 7 hours a night. But only 4 weeks of IB left thank goodness!

    I wish I'd spent a *lot* more time sleeping than worrying about work when I did the IB

    Just relax and enjoy those brief years before adulthood

    relaxation is just not an option!! I'd rather stress now and then have a really chilled first year at uni. apparently doing IB makes the first year a lot easier in terms of work

    I got a 44 and hold an unconditional offer for Medicine at Oxford. I don't say this to boost my ego, I say this to validate the advice I'm about to say and to let you know that I speak from personal experience.

    At your age you need to spend more time looking after yourself, enjoying life and broadening your horizons than worrying about work.
    Not getting enough sleep at night will make you less productive, tired for extra curricular activities and moody/grumpy around your friends.

    Sleep my friend is good for you.

    Thanks

    I can't revise from staring at books and I find rewriting notes only somewhat helpful and I only use it as a last resort.

    My advice would be to print off and do as many papers as you can. For a few of my subjects I found al the papers since 1998, November and May, TZ1 and TZ2 and did all of them over the course of a few months.

    I did each paper from memory beforehand and then went through and corrected my mistakes making copious notes on the papers themselves in red pen *directly* from the markscheme. I then created colour coded notes based solely on the mistakes I made and directly from the mark scheme.

    I condensed all previous notes and then revised solely from them
