For many teens, exam season is the most stressful time of the whole year and studies have shown that this is reflected in their sleep patterns. The sleep council completed a survey amongst teens at the beginning of this year regarding how they sleep in the lead up to exams.
Some of the statistics that came from this research will be a tad shocking to many of us:
- In the lead up to exams the number of teens getting between just 5 and 6 hours of sleep a night doubles from 10% to 20%.
- Exam worry and stress has an impact on 83% of teenagers when they’re trying to get to sleep.
- 56% of teens admit to cramming all their revision into one night.
