Now I understand many of you are viewing this from inside your room and potentially surrounded by books, binders and notebooks. Well in that case let's spice things up a bit with a video to make your palms sweat. Would you jump onto a bag from 52 meters?

For those of you familiar with the Assassin's Creed video game series, you must therefore be familiar with its accompanying soundtrack that has won awards around the world. Here's a playlist full of its best: Study with Assassins Creed
