How can I organise my time more effectively?

mpower gameYou have three assignments due in the same week. Do you?
Begin your assignment early and timetable your studies to ensure they're all done on time
Don't worry about it. Everyone else is in the same boat. You'll get them all done at the last minute anyway.
See your lectures about extensions after you realize you won't get them all in on time.

The off-campus learning juggle

Off-campus learning can be quite challenging as you juggle family, work and study commitments. Few of us are capable of completing our assessment and study objectives without some kind of effort and time. Some people are content to deliver their assignments in a concentrated, last-minute effort, perhaps with a lower mark as a consequence. Some people, however, wish to reduce the stress this approach induces and strive to attain better grades and a more confident understanding for exam time.

Knowing how you work

The point here is that it is important to know yourself. What are your likely approaches to study, to juggling assignment due dates? Do you stick to your arrangements? Will a study timetable work for you? It may be useful here to spend some time with the 'get to know yourself' resources.

Look at the suggestions for making use of university resources in How can I improve my approaches to study?

Also, refer to recommendations for resources available from the Library to assist with your study management, which includes a small review of the resources, a sample chapter, and a link to the Library to borrow it.
