    Don't think you should do an allnighter, you will be so tired your brain will not work very quickly in the actual exam. You should sleep early and wake up early to revise-it is much more efficient.

    No one would recommend you do an allnighter however if you do then get ready to have a heavy dose of caffeine and berroca

    If you have to then yeah just do an all nighter.

    I would recommend waking up early to study but I've had bad experiences.

    don't take coffee unless you're used to it
    bc it might just make you feel worse




    @evilchickenlord

    stay up if you have to
    or make sure you wake up earlier in the morning

    but be prepared to feel drained// i had two exams yesterday with only 2 hours of sleep - the first exam went pretty well but by the time I was sitting my 2nd exam I couldn't think at all and I think know I wrote the trashiest of trash essays/creatives that have ever existed

    Depends how screwed you are. If you dont have the core knowledge to do well in the exam all the sleep in the world isn't going to help you - in this case i recommend it.

    Just be sure to look after yourself and not push too hard.

    Re: Tonight should i cram an all nighter for trials?

    I had two exams today where i only had 1 hour sleep. I highly recommend you don't cram as the stress level is so god damn high. At around 6am, I was trying to sleep but i couldn't. I was so stressed that i couldn't sleep and i felt like giving up... But i guess it worked out in the end. My brain was able to function and answer all the question. However, if you don't know your core topics, then i suggest you should pull an allnighter.

    it depends if you can function without sleep. i pulled quite a few all nighters during my trials lmao, and i probably would've failed if i hadn't
