    Yeah, you're right, it's a crap feeling, but as long as I get through the exam I don't care how I feel before and after. Thanks for the reassurance... now back to the books I go!

    At least an hours sleep is essential to get the infomration you have taken in transferred to your longer-term memory, and improve recall. You could consider meditation if that's your sort of thing as a quicker viable alternative to sleep.

    That said, I wish you the best of luck

    Ack! You need 8 hours sleep before an exam, I had 3-4 before my P3 and my mind was just a blur. I had 10 hours before another exam, with little revision, and my mind was ticking over very nicely

    (this could just be that I suck at p3)

    Good luck, post the outcome!

    Thank you I'm aiming to sleep between 3am and 6am, because I do find my recall improves after sleep and hopefully that's a decent compromise. Fingers crossed...

    I guess everyone's different... I can usually function temporarily on very little sleep and so hopefully will be okay for the exam, but will be a wreck by tomorrow night Thanks for the luck, I may need it!!

    You've made such a mistake staying up all night! The adverse effects of lack of sleep will more than offset those from not knowing a few things.
