Do all nighters work the night before exams?Watch
Nah, they knacker you out. Tried it once, then drank RedBull in the morning. I was energetic for the first few questions of my exam, then my strength just dipped, couldn't muster any mental strength to tackle the harder questions.
Thats the Red Bull, it gives a high and then a low. What the OP needs to do is to do an all nighter, and then got to sleep about 50 mins from when you would normally wake up in the morning. Wake up as normal, because your brain hasn't gone into a deep sleep, you won't feel so tired and will feel energised for your exam. I did it for my Biology exam, worked great. Though I know people who just cannot revise during the night, I prefer the night to day though.
i get tired around 3pm but if its a morning exam its over by then..
do they work? im tempted to do 1 for my geography tomorrow!
However what you can do is cram until 2am.
Sleep until 5am, and continue until you have to leave the house.
You won't feel ridiculously tired until the afternoon, or night.
if its like ict which only requires regurgitating answers from previous mark schemes, it works. (5pm - 12am~10am-12pm)
If its psychology when vasts amount of information needs to be understood and written, no chance.
I learned that revising and then sleeping on it, actually helps you (well it does for me) retain the information. You may not be able to say it out the next morning, but you'll be able to write it.
