So I’ve been revising with music.

But I’ve been told that’s not good because during exams you don’t have music so you won’t remember as well.

But I usually revise in a library and I’m pretty nosey. I listen in to other people conversations often and get distracted very easily thinking about other people’s lives.
So I listen to music to drown out other people.

Does music help with revision or not.
Also having earphones in puts people off talking to me. Even when my friends come in they disturb me less if I have earphones on.

There's not a clear answer to this, or a right/wrong one...Music helps some people and doesn't help others. If it works for you and stops you getting distracted by other things it seems sensible to keep using it!

It's been said that you should put it on low volume on a speaker if you use it, but I can't be the judge of that because I use earphones too.
