Songs For Success: This Playlist Will Get You A First... Maybe ๐ŸŽถ

Exam season is just around the corner, so weโ€™ve created a playlist for you to help you up your grades!

Our studying playlist is made up of the songs graduates who got a First-Class Honour degree listened to while revising or writing their dissertations.

We polled over 1,000 UK-based graduates from 2018 who achieved a First-Class degree (smarties) about what they had been listening to while studying in their final year. These ten songs were frequently mentioned:

  1. Drake - Godโ€™s Plan

  2. Panic! At The Disco - High Hopes

  3. Hans Zimmer - Time

  4. George Ezra - Paradise

  5. Daft Punk - Harder, Better, Faster

  6. U2 - Beautiful Day

  7. Drake - Started from the Bottom

  8. Ludovico Einaudi - Nuvole Bianche

  9. Zac Efron & Zendaya - Rewrite The Stars

  10. David Bowie - Heroes

Alongside this research, we reached out to a psychologist to discuss whether music does actually have any effect on a studentโ€™s results.

Roxana Rudzik-Shaw, a Psychologist and Counsellor, commented:

โ€œMusic is linked to mood, mind-set and well-being. Music can be a powerful motivating tool for students during exam revision. Some music may induce or heighten a positive mood, bringing about a state of calmness or help to still the mind, easing tension or improving sleep, which are all conducive to productivity.

โ€œHowever, at times when motivation or focus is lacking, a student may become easily distracted, there is a risk of upbeat music not only combating boredom by providing a welcome break from revision, but it may pave the way for procrastination with the music possibly even becoming a drain on attention.โ€

It has also been found that songs with 50-80 bpm (beats per minute) are optimal for studying. Check out our playlist on Spotify to see if it helps improve your studying.
