    Bit of info for you to base your decision: Woke up at 5 pm yesterday not slept since. Just got in from school and tired as ****. I also need to revise as I've got exams coming up. I want to get back into my sleeping pattern, however, my head is ****ed and I'm ****ed.

    Option 1: Be a man and stay awake till 11 pm. Although if I do, I won't be able to study tonight.

    Option 2:
    Go to sleep now. Set an alarm for 6 pm, but there is a strong possibility I won't wake up (Unless I've slept for at least 5 hours, I usually sleep through my alarm. I literally do not hear it). However, if I do wake up at 6 pm I'll be able to study till 11 and I'll probably fall asleep by 12 again.

    What kind of exams are they? I would say sleep since that's going to make every aspect of your life better; including school - the sooner you get it back on track

    In the case of a screwed up sleeping pattern and an exam the day after I always go for an energy drink, keep me kicking for a few hours to do some revision, then head off to bed at normal time.

    More often than not I find that little/nothing goes in if I'm cramming revision the night before before (I assume the exam is tomorrow).

    In the past I have tried to bank everything on sleeping for 2-3 hours then waking up, but never did succeed.

    Big question is, when are those exams? Tomorrow? In a weeks time?

    No, ha. My exams are two months from now. I just want to get into a daily study routine so it just becomes more of a habit than a chore.

    Part of me doesn't want to risk sleeping now and not waking up in 3 hours because I sleep through my alarm. But I'm tired -_____-

    Ahh if it's in a months time then I'd personally just stick it out like a man until 11 with an energy drink. Or at least push as hard as I can for 11. If I end up sleeping at this time it has in the past taken a week to get back to 'normal'

    These days though sleeping from 3am to 6am is normal, but my schedule is only 3 days a week

    Forget about studying tonight, OP. It would be really quite bad for your health. They're two months away! You can afford to discount a single night to benefit your health. Sleep and don't study please. Just this once, eh? :giggle:
