For the past couple of nights I've been getting no sleep purely because I am stressed, I don't even turn on my phone before I got to sleep. I've tried everything and my first GCSE exam is tomorrow.

Does anyone have any tips for getting to sleep and/or how to cope with the exams on very little sleep? Thanks

Coffee. Red bull. Take a hot bath, relax before you try and go to sleep - read a book, don’t play on your phone. I wouldn’t stress too much about GCSE’s, they’re not that hard. It’s A-Levels that are the killer lol.

Cross the A levels bridge when you get to it. I find having a clear purpose helps bring my brain back on track (if it's wandering sometimes due to a lack of sleep). You could possibly try some herbal sleeping remedies too. I've had a good experience with Valerian, although I would recommend talking to a doctor and changing your lifestyle habits before taking any medication. Do something that relaxes you before going to bed, e.g. playing an instrument. Sometimes sleeping in the pitch black can help with your circadian rhythm. Take reassurance in your revision Whatever happens, happens, so just do your best!
Good luck tomorrow and with the rest of your exams!
