    clarify things a bit. Did you oversleep for you lectures?
    Just go to bed earlier and if you couldnt sleep till very late then yea probs you are going to oversleep again. Some people are heavy sleepers like me and cant wake up lest they've slept for long enough.

    Just use the time that you are awake more wisely rather than cutting down your sleep by, say, 2 hours, unless you feel like you are getting too much sleep per day and feel tired as a result.

    average sleep cycle is 7-9 hours so maybe 10 is not very healthy. I dont know maybe you should gradually reduce it to 9 hours. Like reduce your sleep duration for 15 mins every week. And try to go to bed early not to oversleep, dont work with your phone or laptop and dont sit on ur bed or eat on your bed just **** on your bed and sleep on your bed and dont do anything else on your bed. Open the curtains and let day light come into your room in the morning. Also, put your alarm at a distance from your bed so that you will have to leave the bed to turn it off. Hope this helped

    Trying to stick to a schedule is way better than having erratic sleeping patterns.
    Circadian rhythms are intricate are biologically are based on sunlight from the sun and its absence in the dark.
    You cannot have gaps or extras.
    Stick to a cycle. 8-10 hours i believe is the recommended amount of time for sleeping for teenagers.

    Surely this should be in the health section? ...

    ... but to answer your question, no, don't miss out on sleep.
