6 must have apps during exam season

There’s no doubt about it, exam season is stressful and studying can often be boring and tiresome. I’ve picked out 6 must-have apps that will help you sort out your life, smash the studying and chill out before your exams.


Quizlet is ideal for putting your homework in your pocket and studying on the go. You can take notes and create interactive flashcards and tests that are much more enjoyable than taking endless notes. You can also share and use other peoples study sets too!

2. Headspace

With so much going on you’d be forgiven for getting a little frazzled around exam season. Headspace is the perfect way to take 10 minutes out of your day, allowing yourself to relax and refocus on the job at hand.

3. Trello

Trello is the perfect way to organise your study sessions leading up to exams. The card system allows you to break down bigger tasks in a super clean card layout, you can also add checkboxes and due dates to make sure you get your work done on time!

4. Sleep Cycle

Getting a good night's sleep and feeling fresh is crucial to performing well in your exams. If the stress is keeping you up at night, you can use Sleep Cycle to help improve and track your sleep. By aiming for 6-8 hours of good quality sleep you’ll be in the best position to smash your exams.

5. Evernote

Evernote is the perfect way to organise all of your notes from anywhere at any time in one safe place. You can sync your ideas on different devices and keep yourself organised and productive even when your way away from home. You can even search for handwritten notes and add audio notes to your studies!

6. Spotify

Studying to music can help increase productivity and relaxation. I can’t imagine working without music and there’s literally a playlist for anything. Rather than opting for your favourite band, why not try a playlist especially curated for studying like the one above? Remember, you can get 50% off on Spotify with UNiDAYS too.

So there we have it, maybe you’ll try every app listed or you might have your favourite few that do the trick. However many you choose to use, I hope they help make your life a little easier when your exams roll around.
