Go to bed.

As a general rule, stay up, just in case you realized you need extra time, or something comes up. (one shot of espresso or equivalent should do it for you). But you can certainly edit it in the morning, which I would recommend (it's good to sleep on it a bit before you revise it). If you're submitting it online, submit it at LEAST 30 minutes before the deadline, just in case there's a glitch, or you realize you got the wrong format, or whatever.

And I know this might make me sound like a broken record, but try not to procrastinate in the future. It's good that you can overcome it this time, but in the future, it could royally screw you over. For me, what caused me to procrastinate was mental illness, which I should have made time to deal with. Best of luck!

Thank you that's absolutely sound advice!!! I'll stay up and get it done, and then have another look in the morning!! Thank you so much! I hope you're coping okay with your mental illness!
