depends on the person - if you feel sleepy in the slightest and feel your eyes involuntarily closing - go to ****ing sleep
if you've drunk about 1L of energy drink in a night, and you feel fairly awake, yet not "normal" - but not sleepy, then keep studying. Well it depends - if you know bits and pieces of ur **** then go to sleep. If you don;'t know anything, then u don't really have a choice do you?
Everyone is different, for me i need 1L of Mother to keep me awake for an all-nighter. Sometimes I sat on my seat and did 10 minute naps, helped out fairly well

I was in the same position last night. It got to midnight and I had nowhere near finished my coursework. So I decided between pulling an all nighter at snails pace, or getting 7 hours and powering through.
Got 7hours sleep and I've now got one thing left to do for my coursework. Done it all in about four hours, a lot faster than I would've without sleep, so get some sleep OP, you need that energy.
About 6hours is the perfect amount.

And yes you should sleep right now for 5 hours and then wake up and review your exam notes for about a couple of hours. Make sure you eat a big breakfast/brunch to give you energy and drink some strong coffee like half hour before the exam so you don't feel like dosing off at the exam.
Good luck brah.

If you're tired right now, try doing something to keep yourself awake so you can study for the next 2 hours. After that, sleep, and when you wake up, you won't feel like you're as screwed. In my opinion, going to bed right now and waking up to study is A LOT harder that you probably would think it is..

Ok, I’ve been talking to people for a long time about the fact that you can get by on 6 or even 4.5 hours of sleep per day without question. The secret is NOT the amount of sleep, but rather the number itself; a multiple of 90 minutes will change your life. One thing I should mention, is that because we are analog beings, and not computers, that which could be 90 minutes for some people, might be 80 minutes for another, or 100 minutes for another; you will eventually learn the length of your sleep cycle by watching the times you naturally wake up and turn over, make a mental note of the time / interval. But assuming that 90 minutes is the average, these are the best lengths of sleep that will not make you feel groggy. The worst thing to do is wake up in the middle of a sleep cycle.
Those are the sleep quantities that you should aim to get, and those are what your body will naturally take, removing the alarm clock. Guaranteed. Go to sleep without an alarm clock, and watch what times you naturally wake up at. It will be a multiple of around 90 minutes from when you first went to bed. This 90 minutes is known as a sleep cycle, and it’s how I try to live my life.
