There's debate as to the benefits of revising in the day compared to the pros of revising at night.

Do you find it easier in the day so it's done out of the way, or do you prefer the peace and quiet of revising in the evening when most people are asleep?

We know that so many people struggle to feel awake enough in the morning to revise, which is why people will lean towards revising at night. Sleeping straight after studying is also meant to help with memory recall, so perhaps the night owls are on to something?

Do you agree? Let us know what you prefer / works best for your revision.

I always preferred revising in the morning- I found it difficult to get started and be motivated if I'd been asleep half the day! My exams were almost always in the morning too, so it meant I was in the routine of working in the morning (and being awake!)

That's a really great point about exams being in the morning. Definitely a great idea to tailor your revision routine, so that you feel awake and ready for them. Thanks for sharing that great tip!

I think a lot of people feel the same. I always seem to get loads of creative thoughts and ideas late at night. This was really great for doing practice essays, and them looking back over them in the morning to see what new ideas had formulated.
