The dreaded examination period has arrived and it is completely unnerving how fast the past 8 weeks have flown by. Having completed two exams this week, it’s very clear that even if you are an exam veteran, like me, you still won’t escape those crippling nerves before entering the exam hall. In a previous post about exams, I mentioned listening to some music can be quite beneficial to help calm those nerves and leave you feeling more positive and focused.
Below is a playlist of some of the songs that are on my iPod and keep me calm before a very stressful 3 hours and 15 minutes. With the help of my lovely friend, Holly (thank you!), I have compiled my 10 favourite tracks to listen to before an exam. I admit I am guilty of having quite a few Beyoncé tracks …then again is that really a bad thing?
1. ‘XO’ (Beyoncé)
2. ‘Happy’ (Pharrell Williams)
3. ‘Three Little Birds’ (Bob Marley)
4. ‘Love On Top’ (Beyoncé)
5. ‘Numb Encore’ (Linkin Park ft. Jay-Z)
6. ‘Le Onde’ (Ludovico Einaudi)
7. ‘Bird’ (Joy Mumford)
8. ‘Halo’ (Beyoncé)
9. ‘Eye of the Tiger’ (Survivor)
10. ‘I Was Here’ (Beyoncé)
I would love to hear from you so please tell me, in the comment box below, some of your favourite songs to listen to before an exam that help you stay calm and focused. 🙂
Good luck with exams everyone and keep an eye out for the next post in my Exam Tales collection!
