Quiet space or Music? Ways to prepare for Medical PG

Music for AIPGMEE preparation

Music: A perfect study background

What is best when you read for your medical PG? A quiet environment or music in the background? It may be a matter of personal choice but there are definite advantages of having music in the background. This applies only if it is the right type of music!

Some studies suggest that listening to music is not good for memory efficiency. This applies to many candidates who are relaxed, with good concentration and have good ability to fend off distractions. A quiet space can cause boredom, can distract you with noises from outside the room and not ideal for people with anxiety. If you are one of them, you might benefit from music in the background.

Although music is good, it’s good to discuss about choosing the right one. The rule No: 1 is that music in this context is for learning, not for entertainment.

Few Good Choices on Music for your AIPGMEE study are Listed Below:

  1. Indian classical music is peaceful and harmonious. Western studies promote the ‘Mozart Effect’. There is evidence suggesting that listening to Mozart improves learning and executive functions.
  2. Listening to instrumental music is a good idea. You could choose a right mood. It is best to avoid a sad violin tone in the background, for example. It is best to keep your mood elevated. If you enjoy sad music, it’s ok too.
  3. Listening to the sounds of nature like rain, waterfall, ocean, jungle etc is a good idea but this can induce sleep during the late evenings. In the late evenings it is best to choose more stimulating one than the sedatives!
  4. You could choose Spotify or Apple music where a number of playlists like nature, instrumental or even ‘music for study’ are already prepared for you. This is good if you prefer non-lyrics or english. You could use Indian online streaming sites too.
  5. This is not a party, so keep the volume low.
  6. Create a playlist of your own for mornings and evenings separately. Avoid music with lyrics that will take your memory to certain anchors. E.g. A particular music can make you think about a movie, a scene, a life event or even Shah Rukh Khan for example. You could play music with lyrics in a language that you don’t understand!
  7. Avoid TV and radio.
  8. Find what is best for you. Stick to it. Avoid endless experiments. Time is limited.
