Is it okay if I am going to revise all night but sleep 1 hour after each hour of revision?

Why would you do that? Just sleep normally at night and wake up and revise.

I don't know how you're gonna be able to concentrate if you keep disrupting your sleep pattern like that. Either way, you're gonna be tired. I guess if you really need to revise it's better to have some sleep than have none at all.

I'd recommend taking power naps instead! After each 1 hour revision session take a 10min nap, use your phone's timer as an "alarm" to wake you up. It may seem like a small amount of time but it really does help you freshen your mind up for a while, there's been plenty of proof that these "power naps" help memory!
When you wake up, you may feel quite groggy, all you need to do is splash some cold water onto your face, or drink a glass of water, getting up from your revision space also helps to revive yourself!

How did you feel the next day in the morning? Did you try it?

I always do it! I feel normal the next morning, but of course, everyone experiences things differently, so if you feel like you are genuinely really tired don't push yourself to do anything!

I've done this before and it doesn't work for everyone. And I personally couldn't keep it up for more than a day or two.

i find pulling an all nighter and drinking coffee in the morning gives me super human energy for the day but i only recommend this for your last exam as it tends to burn me out for like a month after xD haha

Omg, I went through the exact same thought process as you. I would advise to plan at your day, it really helps. Stick to the plan; for example, decide how long you are going to sleep, and what time you will wake up and go to bed.

I did my research the other day and the recommended amount of sleeping time for teens is 9.25 hours or for 7.75 hours.

Make use of the time you are commuting to school or to any location. For example, it takes me a while to get home by bus, but I usually bring flashcards with me or a textbook - basically whatever revision I have in my bag. You’ll realise that you have more time than you think.

This was all from experience and I know it works, so I hope this helps
