    Do you know your content confidently? If it's a 2 hour exam then even a few hours of sleep might help cognition if you wake up early to revise?

    I avoid all nighters... They may turn out disastrous, sleep is pretty much essential. :eek:

    No, I still need to go over material + do past papers. ): I might even force myself to drink yucky coffee so I can get through the night. Uh, idk.

    Yeah, I usually do too bc of past experience.. + I agree.. but I just don't trust myself to wake up on time to revise, especially bc it's already 2am. Like, last night I went to bed at around 3am + I was meant to be up at half 5am so I could do some Maths but I ..slept through 4 alarms. )': Which meant that I couldn't do the essential studying that was required. Uhh.

    It might seem excessive but I set 10+ alarms on a few different devices... It usually works but I get you, sometimes you just sleep through it.
    You need to get at least some sleep, would doing work now and going to sleep for a bit (at a later time) once you've done everything work? Provided you have someone to wake you up so you don't miss the exam, of course... :erm:

    Ultimately, the exam might be more disastrous if you know more but have less sleep rather than if you know less and have more sleep - otherwise you'll just want to fall asleep or misunderstand what is being asked... (Happened to me...) :dontknow:

    10 alarms tho lmao. Yeah, I think that sounds like a good idea. Thank you, I've decided I'll work as much as I can until 5am then just sleep, regardless of whether I've completed everything or not.

    You're right - thank you. (and it's happened to me too; really awful feeling. )

    :hugs:

    Your hard work and dedication will pay off if you're more confident in what you're doing. :yep: This isn't me speaking rubbish btw, it's from experience - I messed up three of my first exams because I didn't believe in my abilities. :sigh: But then I did better in subsequent ones because I learnt from my mistakes. :ahee:
    Good luck Anon, stay positive and don't beat yourself up about it - you can do it! :heart:
    now go and do it :woo:
