    guys i plan on going to bed at midnight and then do you think it would be smarter to wake up early (6:30 ish) to revise for the day, or give myself a lie in and revise for a shorter amount of time but have more sleep? I still have quite a bit to go over again (i havent touched eating behaviour since last week) but i dont want to be falling asleep by the end of the day so idk

    Tbh, I sleep at like 6am anyway. We have study leave and I revise through the night. I will be for sure tired in the exam but so long as I got the info I should be good. Something like chemistry I wouldn't do because it would require actual brain power lol. Here is just copy and paste. Thankfully I can memorise a lot. I used to go to mosque when I was young and memorise a lot of the quran there. I don't use it now- I ain't religious but it was good for memory practise lol.

    Depends on your speed to learn, sleep you need, how much times you have all nighters and so on. I'm very used to it so it affects me minimally vs how it may affect you. It's only 1 night and it can change your grade. Think about the pros and cons! good luck.

    I used to be really good at all nighters but havent had one in ages so i'm not sure lol. I am pretty good at learning last minute though (i did the unit 1 resit and literally learnt most of it in the 2 days before and thought i did pretty well lol) so that's why i was considering cramming more. i think i probably will tbh!

    Good luck, it's just one night and you can really make a big different if you make sure you go though the main essays that will be likely to come up than leave it later and risk missing it.

    How can nature of sleep inc lifespan changes be one 24 mark essay, surely there is enough for an essay on each? Anyone got an example of one that includes both?

    I'm freaking out so much. I've left out questions that's come up the last two years (2015&2014) idk if that's a bad idea but literally had no time to look at them, I prioritised the old ones so worried

    If an essay has come in within the past two years I highly doubt it will come up again. I've not revised ones up for 2015/2014 if they've been a 20/24 mark. AQA usually have at least 2-3 exam Windows before they bring up a topic again so I wouldn't stress about it. Check out Loopa's predictions and you'll see the tables for each topic you're studying.
