In order to be successful in your studies
you must develop proper time management
skills. Classes can be content-heavy and
if you’re not careful, you can find yourself
falling behind and losing marks quickly.
Although the weather is getting nicer and
the end of the school year is just around the
corner, these last few months are important
in order to finish strong.
Here are a few tips on how to improve your
time management the last few months of
1Make note of your assignments so you can keep track when each assignment is due. Try labelling each assignment by
the due date. Scan your course outline often
and take note of the percentage in order to
prioritize tests and assignments.
2Maximize your time at your part-time job or the extracurricular activity ou participate in. Every minute in
every day counts. This might sound silly
but bring your books to work and wherever
you go. You can always read a chapter while
you wait around or on your lunch break.
This will ensure that the time in your day
is maximized. Print a copy of your work
schedule and double check it does not
conflict with your classes.
3Try not to leave class early and don’t skip class. Although the weather will get nicer, students miss out on vital
information, assignments and participation
marks due to leaving class early or not
attending class at all.
4Watch the amount of time you spend on social media. Social media can take up a huge amount of your time
that could be used studying or focusing on
assignments. Let your friends know that
you may be offline for some time while you
are in school. This will allow you to focus on
your studies and maintain good grades.
If you manage your time effectively, it’s
much easier to get the grades and results
