Anyone got any tips for blocking out noise ?
The study room is so freaking loud and I can not get my notes done. I’ve got so much work to do and telling them to be quiet doesn’t work.
Someone pls help!

Buy a pair of earplugs. I find them to be a massive help!

Yeah I’ve stolen (I mean borrowed... cough) my brothers supposedly sound proof headphones but I don’t think they work. Hopefully I’ll be getting my pay check next week so I might invest in something a bit more powerful in the realm of sound blocking

It’s less of a problem outside of school times since my house is nice and quiet... it’s just when I’m at school I’ve got lots of free periods and I want to complete all my y13 work in my free periods and my y12 revision work after school.
So my in school time is very valuable to making sure I succeed this year.

wearing earplugs doesnt help you study any better actually worse in my opinion, i would suggest finding a room your teacher will let you study in by yourself or with a few friends

I have a teacher that has an open door policy so I could ask him if I could use his room during free periods.

Honestly, try a pair of earplugs before you drop any serious cash. They're only a few quid and you'd be surprised at how effective they are.

Is there a library at your school? If there is then it would be a good idea to study and do your notes at the library. If that doesn’t work I’m afraid I don’t have any other advice.
