who sleeps ... gets good marks in exams!

Massachusetts: Oh no! The purpose of this news is not to encourage readers to be lazy and sluggish, but a recent study has shown that students who fall asleep at the right time at night and regularly "sleep well". "They do well in exams and their numbers come out very well.

It is not new that good sleep, good health is guaranteed, but it also has good effects on our brain. However, in the world of medicine, "good sleep" refers to a sleep in which the mind is completely calm and after which the human being feels completely refreshed.

100 students were recruited as volunteers for this research conducted at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Wearing all the "Fitbit Bands" on health monitors, their performance was reviewed throughout the semester, including 11 quizzes, three midterm exams and semester exams.
It was learned that the students who were accustomed to sleep till two o'clock or later in the night, their performance was poor in all the quizzes and exams; no matter how much sleep they had taken. Students who fell asleep at night were clearly better than they were.

It was also found that students who sleep late at night, even if they get enough sleep one night before the exam, still do not improve their performance in the exam. Although this study does not prove that good sleep is the cause of good academic performance, a strong relationship between the two has certainly emerged. This means that if a student sleeps fast at night and wakes up with a good amount of sleep, despite studying hard, he will be able to perform well in the field of education with a fresh mind.

An interesting revelation about this is that if you have a good sleep duration, the right time for you to sleep is between 10am and 1pm. "But even if you go to bed at 2am or later, and get a good amount of sleep, your performance will still be severely affected," said Jeffrey Grossman, who teaches Materials Science at MIT. Professor and supervisor of this study.

Details of this research have been published online in the latest issue of the research journal "Science of Learning."
