    One of your tasks is to deliver yourself to the exam room in the best condition.

    Being rested and in a decent mental state will help your performance. If you arent getting enough sleep then it sounds like anxiety.

    You can look up sleep tips, but I tend to:

    Have a milk drink, read a book (fiction), listen to the radio, play some music, have a bath. You might also wish to look into meditating.

    Try exercising - it helps reduce stress.

    Can someone give tips on how to actually get out of the habit of depriving yourself of sleep? This is a problem I have had for a long time, and now it's like I'm used to staying up so late that I don't even notice the time go by. Is it about time management?

    Work backwards from whatever time you need to get up in the morning to work out when you need to go to bed by. This depends on how much sleep you need - it's supposed to be about 8 hours I think but it varies for different people. Then you just need to try and stick to that time I guess,but I can't help you much with that as I'm not very good at it either

    Set yourself a routine. No tech after a certain time (an hour before bed would be good, not always possible, try 40 mins, works for me). No work after a certain time. In bed by a certain time, and lights off at a certain time. Might sound a bit grim but it gets your body into a rhythm.
