Staying up the whole night before an exam or sleep?Watch this thread
Say you had an exam the next day (morning at 8:00) and you had not revised everything, but staying awake the whole night and studying for 12 hours would get you more prepared and allow you to revise/finish everything.
Or you could sleep.
Its ur fault that u dint study or revise it earlier..
According to 'Brain Rules' by neuroscientist John J. Medina, staying up the whole night leads to a roughly 30% decrease in brain function. That doesn't sound conducive to writing an exam.
Do as much learning as you can while getting your 8 hours of sleep.
If you revise like mad, you won't be able to think the next day, especially with the lack of sleep.
If you go straight to sleep and don't revise, then you're not going to have the knowledge.
Ultimately, if you know you haven't revised at all and you needed to, then it's probably not going to make the most significant of differences, as the bad choice has already been made; this choice is only minor in comparison.

Works for me
If you feel like the exam is a lost cause anyway i.e. you have done NO revision for it, I don't see how sleeping is going to help. If you've done quite a bit of work for it, get a few hours sleep and wake up early. Good luck!
People who say you can't learn anything past 9pm the day before are liars.
If I stayed up all night studying, I wouldn't be able to stay awake for my exam.
What. why would anyone sleep? if you know nothing sleeping will surely not help at all but maybe an all nighter could help a bit and maybe pass.
