    I usually study everyday after school for at least 2 hours. I went to an after school revision session today, but I still feel so bad for not really studying much at all until now, because I only got around 5 hours of sleep and I'm exhausted. Any advice? Should I just push through as usual or give myself a rest night if I'm extremely tired?

    Well in general you should be looking to get 7 hours sleep minimum so maybe figure out a routine for days where your not able to study as much due to after school stuff. Your already doing more than a lot of people so it wouldnt be too bad to ease up a bit especially if it would mean that you would be healthier and with more energy. That way when you do revise it would be a lot more productive than if you were to 'push through'

    Thanks, I completely agree. It's just today I'm so tired, and I usually get enough sleep, but due to circumstances I didn't get enough and so I'm just not in my usual healthy state and mindset. I just need to work on not feeling guilty for taking a day off sometimes.

    Taking a day off sometimes is complettely normal, healthy even cuz you need some time to recover from the stress of working so much

    what are you studying for? If its N5s (gcses) do not put yourself under soo much stress and pressure; you dont need it. I studied a moderate amount a week before my exams for my National 5s and highers and got all A's doing "hard" subjects. Sleep plenty, eat right, move your body and have a social life
