    Hello! Tomorrow is the start of my revision plan which will take place from now until my final examination. In the past whenever revising I have used spotify and listened to my favourite songs as it made me feel happier ha.

    However, I have heard that I am not giving myself real revision when using spotify to play my favourite songs and no I won't replace it with classical music sorry. Ill just get rid of it if that is best...

    Many thanks

    Music definitely distracts me from reading, but if I'm doing equations for math I listen to music.

    Instrumentals are the best, lyrics distract you. I listen to japanese music cause i don't understand it. Also i use white noise to cover the background!

    Lyrics distract me, as I listen to them instead of reading or thinking about what I'm supposed to revise.

    I think i will start trying to reduce my music intake during revision as I guess it is a form of distraction.

    It depends what you like to listen to, if it is slow music then that generally tends to be less distracting. Also if you have songs which have a lot of meaning attached to then it will distract you from reading.

    I have always found that music is great to revise with! The tip that I would always recommend is going into Spotify or 8tracks and finding a playlist that is roughly the length of how long you plan to revise for - say one hour, then you know when you can have a break. I always find music helps me calm and blurs into the background when I start studying. I got straight A*s and As at GCSE and 3 As at AS, so it's definitely doing something right

    Hey, thanks for your reply- I am assuming you have no problem with music that contains lyrics then ??

    Not in my experience haha but music without lyrics, especially film scores, is also great!
