    I thought I'd caught up on my sleep this weekend, but I think some very late nights and early mornings last week cramming in revision have taken their toll, and I already feel like I could happily go to bed (it's 9pm!) Trouble is, I have an exam in the morning that I have to revise for - and 7 more exams over the next 2 weeks.

    How can I wake myself up when I start lagging after a day's revision? I've tried Red Bull, but it makes me feel awful :eek: and coffee just makes me jittery and unable to concentrate. What other methods do you guys use to keep yourself awake whilst working and keep your brain focused?

    Usually, I don't. Just let fear do the waking - it'll get much easier as the exams approach.

    Or just splash Ice cold water over your face in the morning. Have a nice cup of tea aswell.

    After having read your thread, I realise my above method isnt the best way to wake yourself up whilst knackered, infact itll probably send you into a coma, if youre that tired its best just to go to bed, the revision is next to pointless..
