    I find that listening to music whilst working helps me remember things better. If you play that song before your exam you ought to be fine Although sometimes I found that I was singing the song in my head during the exam instead of doing work lol.

    The same works for smells and tastes, apparently. Give it a go!

    listen to stuff like techno annd classical that have no words and isn't too 'intrusive' on the ear.

    However dont do past papers and tests with music in your ears, you dont have that liberty in the exam so it will probably throw you off in the actual exam

    Music in my ears is way too distracting, i tried it before and sooner or later i found myself dancing and singing along. not a good sign.

    Everyone has different ways of revisiing, but i just revise for an hour, listen to some tunes for like 10 minutes whilst making a good old cup of tea as a break and then the cycle begins again lol

    I didn't feel motivated for the last 2 weeks to do revison so 2day i decided to swithc my ipod on and this really motivated me to do revison. But i just wanted to know if this is good for reviosn by having music on or bad? because me is :confused:
    If you must have music on, it's supposed to be best to listen to classical baroque music from what I've heard - it helps with concentration and memory etc etc

    But it depends on the person :yep:

    It's funny, I've had the thought about smells and my huge collection of aftershaves, spraying a certain one whilst reading a piece of information. And then keeping my fingers all spraying with those same aftershaves would spring my memory..

    yeah quiet music with no words can be good because it fills the silence. But music with words is a huge offput.
