Many people say they use classical / study music when revising their a levels, especially when memorising content. They say it takes revision to another level.

Anyone else out there who uses this type of music when revising who wouldn't mind sharing their views regarding this? Has anyone even tried doing this? if so, what was the outcome.

i tried it and to be fair there was no difference as i was in a silent room anyway.

Forget A-level, I even did that at university.

The point is that music makes you feel happy and relaxed, so you don't feel bored when revising.

Of course, everyone's different, but it worked well for me.

Listen to music you are happy to listen to but isn't something you'd normally listen to. Without words is best or it gets all mixed up in a disgusting mess.

Film soundtracks are great IMO!

I find any type of music motivates me really, not necessarily 'classical'. I listen to German music when doing my AS German work and... usually when doing my other work also haha.

I am skeptical about the benefits.

Lol, me too! Instead I listen to normal music on spotify on shuffle (not too loud though otherwise I'll sing & dance rather than do work )
However when I revise from I notes I dont have any music it just my loud voice

Btw I wouldn't recommend listening to classical music. That would just make revision even more boring :lol:

Oops, I actually meant my favourite kinds of music. Never liked classical tbh.
