    I usually only wake up earlier than usual when I'm anxious or have something big planned for the day. But I think I have been waking up at 4 or 5 am lately because of the stress, which is odd since I sleep at like 9pm and I don't really feel tired in the mornings or throughout the day when I do this. Is this bad for my health or does anyone think I should continue doing this and use it for my benefit and revise? I'm just confused.

    Don't worry mate loads of people wake up early to revise. In fact, research has found that sleeping early and waking up early to revise is better as you are more likely to retain the information- but different things work for different people. I also study best early in the morning so I usually sleep at 10:30 and wake up at 4 am as well. Good luck for your exams btw.

    Ps. No, it's not bad for your health because it seems you get around 7-8 hours sleep which good enough

    In my opinion as what I have experienced, Sleep early wake up not much early, dont revise if your test is in the morning, you will clash and stress yourself. Just be positive, if want to be ready for the test you had to be ready one day before the test, not in the same day of the test.
