Examinations are something inevitable in our lives, and most of the time, we students panic. It seems like no matter how much we try to squeeze every bit of information into our brains, time is never on our side.

Most of us choose to stay up throughout the night to do last minute revisions, thinking that it will help somehow. But truth is that we're actually destroying ourselves, bringing ourselves single-handedly to fatigue.

After studying for so many years, I found a rather suitable way for me to keep my energy level up, to keep on going when I choose to study overnight. It was purely coincidental that I found this method. I kinda tweaked it a little into something more logical. I don't guarantee that it will work for you though, but you can try!

3 hours of sleep.

That is the secret.

No matter what, you've got to admit that having a proper rest is important. Nobody can stay up the entire night without feeling tired. That amount rest is good enough to go, even for afternoon naps!

I realized that I felt more energetic when I slept for 3 hours as compared to long hours... But of course, PLEASE do not do this in the long term because we all know that it is not good for the body! I only do this during the examinations period.

My preferred timings are 12.30am - 3.30am. I read somewhere that this is the time our organs rest, so since I need to rest, why not rest at this timing! There are side effects of course, and that is not being able to wake up on time. I kena a lot of times before; my bed's so attractive like some magnet!

That is why pleaseeee remember to turn on at least 10 alarms to ensure that you can wake up, at least be on time for exams! I can sleep through all my alarms, horrible is me.

If you're interested to try it out, I suggest you do it probably a week before your examinations period. Must "test" first before you implement it. Remember to replenish your food and drinks too!

Let me know if you've tried it and it worked, ok! Best is if you'll never use this method, work hard and sleep well on a regular basis! ;D
