I know people say this is a big no no but it makes me productive. Do you listen to music while revising?

Only when I'm struggling to motivate myself and just need to plod through repetitive tasks (i.e. organising notes so I can summarise them later, making Quizlet sets). I really can't focus well with background noise so it's only if I'm super bored and won't get the tasks done otherwise.

Oh I just remembered the exception - at GCSE I was doing French and Spanish, so would listen to music in the respective languages to help my brain switch between them when I needed to revise both in quick succession.

I listen to music while revising anything that's not maths. If I listen to music while revising maths I find it hard to calculate stuff in my head lol, that's just me though. You do you...

wow i'm the complete opposite. i can't revise biology w/ music because i have to comprehend and understand it and the music is a distraction, but i can with maths because i somehow don't get distracted when i solve problems xD

When it comes to revision, please never make the mistake of becoming obsessed with how others revise. Yes, we can learn from other's methods but - as cliché as it sounds - what works for another will not necessarily work for you. With the warning out of the way, yes I used music for my humanities and not for sciences (A-levels).

I listen to quite high-energy music when I revise maths/chemistry/physics (so not the instrumental 'study' music) and I don't have any problem with it, but if I'm writing something I can't concentrate on it at all when there's music with words playing.
