Does anyone do this?

and do you think it's wise or is it distracting and not very efficient

Helps me loads. I never revise without music.
Energetic music too, like dance or something. Keeps me focussed and into my work.

Listen to Kutski on Radio 1 if you're staying up late.

I find it distracting, and end up just singing along not doing any work...

According to Psychology, you shouldn't revise and listen to music. According to the working memory model which says that the memory will be overloaded. Therefore it would be unwise to do both at the same time.

I found some evidence that suggests it depends on whether you're an introvert or an extravert. Introverts get distracted by all the extra stimuli, but extraverts find it helps them to not get bored.
I'm an introvert, so I need complete silence- the music just distracts me.

I generally listen to ambient music while revising, but I know many people who prefer silence.

Depends which subject I'm revising..
If it's maths, which is basically all practice, good music keeps me motivated and happy
But if it's science, where I need to LEARN stuff, then it distracts me..

I listen to classical when revising e.g. Escala and Study Music Project (on youtube) and it seems to help :dontknow: but it's also helpful to do past papers in silence as that is what the exam will be like.

Depends on the subject. I have to do maths in silence or I never get anything done. English lit I revise with the Tv on and biology and chemistry I revise with music.

Just depends doesn't it. Everyone revises differently.
