    Anyone else trying to pull a revision all-nighter tonight? I'm bored, tired and getting jittery from too much coffee! Any tips on making this worth the sleep deprivation?

    I think you're right, and I'm aiming for that, but probably getting up at 6ish to cram for the exam...

    I just want to get through it with as many marks as possible, I don't care how bad I feel by the afternoon - I'll sleep then

    Yeah, really do. Nothing worse than taking an exam without having had enough sleep. You won't remember anything once you start getting tired anyway!

    No! Not for exams, they don't. Going to bed early and getting up early works for me... but you still need lots of sleep.

    You'll get more marks i think if you have more than 3 hrs rest - you would be able to focus more on the exam rather than lose concentration. Is this GCSE, AS or A-level?

    Me too, usually, but if I go to bed now, I just won't know the stuff. I think I stand a better chance of cramming and missing some sleep, enduring the exam (it's only an hour and a half) and then sleeping afterwards!

    A-level. I'm really torn between the fact I haven't revised a few sections so will literally fail the exam if they come up, and between needing sleep/a clear head.
