Got bored of the usual study playlist ? You’ll definitely need these smashing jams.

Yes, there are tons of festivals & gigs in November which are mouth watering & everyone wants be part of it, but unfortunately some of us have exams during this time. Concentration is a major problem, of course, and there’s nothing like good music to get you in the mood. When it’s time to hit the books, listen to something that will keep you as alert as any double-shot latte.

A research suggests that students would be better off listening to their favourite music while studying, rather than trying to find some magical genre that will somehow increase their mental prowess.

With that in mind, The Sherp has listed out 10 tracks which will definitely energise & motivate you this exam season. So pull out your notes, put on your headphones, and press play of our mix of music.
