    I left my revision too late and have to stay up tonight for my pure maths exam tomorrow. If there are people who do this can you offer any tips? Do's and dont's?
    I know the sensible thing would be to get a good night's sleep but I'm just completely blank, I have to do something.

    Very cold shower, breakfast, caffeine (though it makes me sleepy) and relax before exam time.

    OP your probably gonna have to use some drugs e.g. caffeine just before the exam then be prepared to be extremely tired after it. If you've got other exams then this is not advised

    I did that but it was forced on me because I couldn't sleep the night before the exam so I only slept for like 2 hours. If you know your work really good you'd be fine. I wrote mine on low energy and got an A. There's no special tips or anything.

    You will perform better with sleep. I would go for 6 hours.

    Sleep is a bit overrated. I've gone into exams feeling completely out of it, barely able to remember who you are sort of level tiredness lol. But the adrenaline takes over. Caffeine I guess I would advise but be wary of too much especially if it's a long exam as it can cause a slump.
