I prefer working at night time (when I say night I mean from about 10 to the early hours of the morning), but it is not very practical when you have school every morning. Any advice on the most effective way to go about revision when you are a 'night owl'?

I'm hoping I'll be able to basically turn nocturnal once I'm on study leave! At the moment though, I'll normally start working at 8 (although it takes about an hour to get in to it) and finish at 11. In that time, 10-11 is the most productive hour for me!

Edit: that didn't really answer question though...
My tips would be don't put off revising by telling yourself you can *only* work at night, have a set time to finish - I try and always finish by 11 if I need to get up in the morning, and do something menial to switch off after revising otherwise you'll be too fired up to sleep.

That sounds like a fab solution. Thank you!

Have you tried sleeping for a bit, when you get in from school? Just so you're less tired the next morning, after getting fewer than 6-8 hours sleep.

I've always worked better at night and this is what I sometimes did last year.

My brain just doesn't work in the morning whereas I feel much more receptive to learning at night so am definitely a revision night owl! I wouldn't say it was that good for the social side of things though...

I'm the same! My advice would be to work hard on Friday nights (when getting up early usually isn't necessary) and try to do all social media / music / leisure activities before 9pm or whenever it is you start to feel ready to work.

A little off the original question but still involves revision and sleep, I found this interesting and it could help many in upcoming exam revision.....http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencete...-research.html...... It will certainly change my habit of revising and then taking a break playing computer games and stuff, I looks like a little nap after revision is the way to go.

I remember doing this once or twice when I had an exam the next day.

I usually sleep from 5 to 8pm when I come home from school, because you are bound to feel tired, then I revise up until 12

To my death bed? Sounds about right.... I'll go jogging around Wii Fit Island (although flying is better!)

On a side note, doesn't exercise have proven benefits for working? Something to do with the release of endorphins. Or maybe that's just good for keeping you happy
