Surprise! Exam scores benefit from months of regular sleep
from Science News for Students
You've probably heard it a dozen times by now. But here it goes again: Sleep is important. Just how important? Scientists know that our weight, mental health and immune system are connected to our sleep habits. So are your grades — to a surprising degree, a new study finds. Sleep accounted for nearly one-fourth of the difference among students' grades in a class, it showed. So even if you spend hours studying for a test but get too little and inconsistent sleep, you might still do poorly. And boys with poor sleep habits appeared to suffer most.
