    Early to bed and early wake up - miles better, brain is fresher and you can get the day's revision done to free up your evening.

    Agree with Ness, I become less productive towards the end of the day, but if I wake up at say 8:00 then I'm more productive, I guess you could say I'm more of a morning person

    Completely depends on the person. When writing essays in particular I find that if I stay up past about 10/11 I can then stay up and keep working quite well for hours. Whereas I'm unproductive in the morning.

    However, if I was going to revise in the library I'd say early start is better as you get the whole day there, with just grabbing lunch, whereas it tends to feel less productive in the evening.

    During my A-levels I used to stay up late, very late. I would wake up around 1-3pm and then revise from then until the early hours of morning, maybe 6-7am. This is when I was most productive. Also when everyone else was asleep, was the only time my house was quiet. You have fewer distractions as well. I.e, no one else is up to tweet/text you.

    I prefer an average getting-up time, about 8am, do some exercise then shower, then I've got about 7 hours to get things done before an evening shift at work

    I find it hard to get to sleep before 1-2 anyway so I tend to find it better to work late. Either way I won't be alert and working before 10-11 the next morning, might as well get some work done out of it.
