    I have never done an exam so early. Is it a bad idea?

    We normally tell our students to book their test at the time of day they are normally most productive. If you normally get up early and start studying at 0800 then sitting your test then is a good idea. However, if you've been going to bed at 3 and waking up at 11 then obviously it's not wise to sit the exam in the middle of your normal sleep cycle! Just do whatever is sensible for you and don't forget to factor in how long it will take you to get to your test centre.

    I did mine at 8 am and the centre was about an hour and a half drive from my house. So it's definitely doable. With that being said everyone is different. So I'd advise you to pick the time you are most comfortable with. If you have already booked it you can always reschedule it(I rescheduled mine 4 times)

    You may have to get used to doing important things at 8am if you go ahead with medicine

    But either way I doubt it matters. Even though I'm a night owl, I prefer morning exams because then I don't have the day to worry about it

    Ah I've booked mine for 8 am because I reckoned, as mentioned above, then I don't have to worry about the exam for the rest of the day! I prefer just getting it over and done with rather than letting pressure build up :/
