How many hours of sleep do you get?Watch
How many hours do you reckon you can get away with in order to revise effectively without being tired throughout the day?
And how many hours of sleep do you actually get?
Please comment below!
Try to be in bed for 11 and asleep for half 11 then I wake up at 7am.
Any later and I will be tired.
Please note this varies from person to person, it's about trial and error, seeing what works for your body
However, for me I operate best at around 9.5 hours (quite a lot for someone of my age), however I can function on 8 hours sleep, and not feel the need to sleep in class etc - generally I try to sleep by 11pm to get up by 7am, any more is a bonus.
I think what else you do in the day will also affect how much sleep you need, i.e spend the whole day doing nothing but revising (not a good idea for sanity's sake) and you don't need as much sleep as someone who revised most of the day, but went to the gym for an hour or so, you get me?
Hope this helps, let me reiterate that this completely varies from person to person!!

I'm ok with 5-6 hours of sleep, less than that and I'll be tired most of the day, I actually need to sort out my sleeping pattern before my exams comes otherwise I'll struggle.
I currently get around 6 hours I think, which is good for me but might be bad for some people haha
Varies between 4 and 7 hours a night depending on how busy my work/social/volunteering/college life is going.
Sometimes I'd sleep 1am-7am, others I'd fall asleep early and wake up at something like 3am because I was knackered and just nodded off in bed and I wake up at that kind of time if I sleep too early.
I found that I felt more refreshed with the second approach even if that was accidental. I used to wake up earlier than I needed to (unintentionally, as I say) and it gave me time to wake up properly, sort some revision out etc.
