A new study says well-rested students get better grades.Researchers at the University of Pittsburgh looked at teens between the age of 14 and 18. The students who had problems sleeping at night -- or were drowsy during the day -- were put in one group. Those with good sleeping habits were placed in a second group.

Researchers say there was a direct correlation between sleep and academic performance. Students who woke up fewer times during the night had higher scores in Math and English.

Researchers concluded that the best recipe for students is to study hard and to get lots of rest before a test.
