Hi i was wondering if it is worth sleeping an extra hour or two more or studying anyone have any advice on the benefits of sleeping ?
Had the same question yesterday whilst cramming for 3u and 4u. Ended up being a stupid decision. I made plenty of careless errors and had no drive whatsoever during the test. Just sleep.Hi i was wondering if it is worth sleeping an extra hour or two more or studying anyone have any advice on the benefits of sleeping ?
Lmao thanks for the advice, I also previously studied for a chemistry exam all night and i became so sleep deprived that in the exam and I couldn't remember anything i learnt WILL NEVER be doing that againDO NOT STUDY WHEN YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO SLEEP!!!!!!!!
I wish someone yelled this at me in year 11 LISTEEENNNNNN
For my prelim Task2, my exam schedule was absolutely packed, I had like 2 exams every day, first and then last period. I also had not used my time prior to exam block wisely enough. This made me pull an all nighter one night, before my Economics Exam that was first period, and my Legal Studies Exam last period. Sure, I read through my notes, did a bunch of stuff that you would call 'studying'.
But guess how I went for my Economics Exam?
But what about my Legal Exam?
I was so damn tired that all the information I had retained overnight went straight out of my brain and I went to the exam as if I hadn't studied at all.
So I learnt from this, and slept for an average of 7 hours every night before my exams for Task 3, regardless of how much I had studied, or needed to study.
I actually came top 10 for most of these exams for this task.
My point is, don't fcken study when you're meant to sleep and make sure you get enough so that you will be able to glue your eyes for an hour to a page whilst using yo brain.
You can thank me later, or I'll say I FOKCIN TOLD U SO U BLOODY STCHEWPID
i have not tried coffee yet , i'll probably need it soon thoughCoffee - Let me introduce myself. Like temporary fuel for someone who feels like a dead zombie dragged down the highway.
Well, I gave you my chemistry notes. If you think Coffee is unhealthy, please try grape vape.
planning exactly what your going to do on the day is rlly good cos u can focus entirely on what ur meant to be doing instead of worrying about other tasks that might be stressing u out.Sleep. I've been sleeping before 12 most school days (excluding holidays) and I'm feeling energetic at school whilst everyone is like a pack of dead zombies.
What I do to stay up on top of all my work and have a mostly healthy sleep schedule:
1. Establish what I have to do that particular day (Do this before you come home from school)
Make sure its a realistic amount (I usually write the approximate time a task will take)
2. Grind and finish it all with some free time in the evening before you sleep (Delayed satisfaction)
It'll improve your mood.
Note: Make sure you take small breaks between study sessions!
I agree to a certain extent, but also IMO people who are "night studiers", (from personal experience at least) that's placebo. I would procrastinate the entire afternoon away and get really down to business after dinner, but that was mainly because of this increased pressure that I was like "Oh crap, the day has just slipped by I better do something." That meant that it wasn't necessarily that I couldn't study in the arvo, it was just that I didn't feel the pressure until it was almost bedtime and then my efficiency levels would go up.Unpopular opinion but I believe it depends on the individual.
I have always been able to function properly on 4-5 hours on sleep. I also prefer to study at night so my 'golden hours' are 9pm–2am. During this time frame, I can study at maximum efficiency without any breaks and it worked really well for me during the HSC. On the other hand, I had friends going to bed at 9pm no matter what and they also did very well.
Maybe you can try both and see which works the best for you.
