Q. I never seem to have enough time to do my work and am always rushing to finish


The quick answer is to plan but many students can find this overwhelming.  Here are some quick tips:-

  1. Break down your work into realistic sections to achieve your goals.
  2. Plan and prioritise on an ongoing basis and develop an understanding of what is important and what is urgent.  It will help to keep a visual reminder of key hand in dates.
  3. Organise your diary.  Plan for work , leisure and chores. Be aware of procrastination and time stealing activities.  Be creative and use your time wisely.
