    Lol same here, too much silence drives me crazy kinda feels like you are in a black & white movie with no noise kinda thing

    I always find some music in the b-ground helps....*same here I always hear TV in my house too that's usually why I have music on much better than trying to 1/2 listen to what the tv is saying*

    I sometimes need something on on the radio in the background, especially if everyone is asleep while you're revising. It reminds me that other people are still there awake too, besides you.

    I prefer some sort of background music, preferably at a low volume. If anything about the music will distract me it's the lyrics, which is why trance works!

    I much prefer revising with mates (and by no means in silence, we are so rowdy!), so when they ask for help I can give the answer and it helps me understand it better.

    Hell no, the silence kills me and puts me under so much pressure. It's true that you can take more in generally, and it's less probable that you'll get distracted, but sometimes complete silence can wreak havoc among the nerves of people

    Sometimes it's too silent, and you know that your whole family's asleep, but not you. It's just more comforting to know that other people have late nights too. I dunno, I just prefer it that way.

    When I revised for my exams (both GCSE and A-level) I always had music playing. I still always have music playing when I am doing work - I find it helps me concentrate.

    Classical music helps me - sad and highbrow though it may seem... pop/rock/whatever else I have on gets distracting cos I keep singing along!

    I revise whole night frequently while watching ftv . having the tv turned on but the sound turned off helps me to concentrate but relax at the same time .
