    Listen to a Cliff Richard album from the early 1970's, after realising every one of the 15 songs on it sound the same you will instantly be asleep. Failing that watch some Graham Norton which will have the same desired effect.

    Personally, I find the best way to fall asleep is to close your eyes.

    I just have a problem with sleep altogether, let alone around exam time! I just can't seem to be able to empty my mind. I have the days (or weeks) events going through my head and I can't stop it. I've even tried knicking myself out with sleeping pills, took too many but it still had no effect on me whatsoever.

    Personally I'd find it difficult to sleep with Graham Norton's voice in the background...

    You could get Derren Brown to phone you up like he does on TV with the public telephones, where the people who answer end up falling asleep.

    Hmmm i never sleep on any day so count yourself lucky. Well, i DO sleep, of course, just not much, and not everynight, and no it isn't a case of "go to bed earlier" whatever i do i can't sleep and i don't want to be taking sleeping tablets so i've just got used to it really. I probably average about 4 hours sleep a night, forget bad for exams - that's bad for health, so consider yourself lucky!

    Lavender, a lavender pillow can work.

    Boots do a nutmeg and mint spray that you spray on your pillow.

    Get into a routine. Switch tv, pc, etc off. Have a warm bath a milky drink and go to bed. You need to do this at the same time every night for a week or two though. After a while you body gets the message that this is the before sleep routine and gets ready for sleep when you do.
