So I want to put the sentence ''Ich werde um Viertel nach sechs wach'' in the perfect tense.
Is it ''Ich bin um Viertel nach sechs geworden wach''
or
''Ich bin um Viertel nach sechs wach geworden''?

Thanks in advance

my guess is the first one... but just say "Ich bin um Viertel nach Sechs aufgestanden", like Nilpferdkoenig referred to

This is the best answer. Just use this, it sounds the best. The second option is right, but it sounds goofy and awkward.

Not at all. I'm German and ts' second option was perfectly normal. It doesn't sound awkward to me at all.

Eh, I just think that aufstehen would be a better verb to use because it makes the sentence less wordy and more simple.

That said however, I am only a German student of 6 years, not an actual German. So your advice is probably better than mine.
