    all night

    Does pulling an all-nighter mean not to sleep all night doing something? Or could you have slept also though a little.

    It is defined by Longman Dict that an all-nighter is "an occasion when you spend the whole night studying or doing written work in university".
    So, what do you think? (Not a teacher.)

    But it seems irrational to think that you would study for the whole night without even cat naps, to prepare for an exam. It's sure that what you've studied would be useless.

    Sometimes, I have to burn the midnight oil for tomorrow exam without sleep.
    How about you, are you taking cat naps while preparing exam at night?
    Once you sleep, you cannot wake up for the book again.

    Re: all night

    The night before the exam, I sleep like a log and wake up early in the morning scan my books. University all-nighter is out of my list of activities.
