In the exams based on limits and derivatives, in this study, it was tried to determine that if there was any difference in students' test scores according to the type of music listened to and environment without music. For this purpose, the achievement test including limits and derivatives and whose reliability coefficient of Cronbach Alpha is 0.83 was applied with the environments in which different types of music were listened, to 98 students studying at Primary Mathematics Teaching Department in Buca Faculty of Education in Dokuz Eylul University. As a result, it was observed that both male and female students' test scores form the exam based on limits and derivatives compared to the environment without music; besides, the increase in average number of correct answers of female students was higher than the male students'.
