Lack of sleep will definitely affect performance. It’s up to you where you go from here. I suggest spend an hour really strategically revising rather than going over everything/completing a checklist and get some sleep as you know more than you’d think!

I always used to try and get extra sleep before exams.

I always thought being at your optimal cognition is better than some last minute midnight cramming.

I, personally, would rather I spent more time resting than on revising the day before. It usually stresses me out, and if I've revised well enough, then I only need an hour-ish to quickly cover or repeat parts I struggle with.

Depends on how your body responds to sleep deprivation , if you havent covered half the reading then i'd just do an all nighter and sleep for a few hrs.

I mean, I have done exams with no sleep the night before and I did fine, so I suspect you will manage, but different people are affected differently by lack of sleep.

I completely agree! Your brain can’t function optimally on such little sleep. Go over some topics you are really unsure of briefly, but try and get at least 7-8 hours of sleep. Trust me, you know more than you think you do.

I was worried when you said you usually sleep well, as suddenly losing a couple of hours of sleep could be difficult. But if you really think you can handle it well, then I'm sure you'll be okay. Just make sure not to stress yourself out - and don't force yourself to stay awake if you get tired. Stay well x
