As a student, cramming is surely your number one frenemy. Maybe you have many tasks to do or just simply forget to do your project and only remember it the day before the deadline. If you think about it, cramming should not be an option when studying. Even if you think you can finish your projects through cramming, it is still a terrible habit to develop, but how can you prevent cramming if you have lots of activities in and out of school?
Here are 3 Ways to Finish Your School Projects before the Deadline:
Know your Priorities
If you are overloaded with lots of projects and exams, categorize them according to their deadlines. Projects and tasks with earlier deadlines should be on the top of your to-do list while those that need to be submitted later can wait until you finish the first ones. You can also categorize them based on their level of difficulty as long as their deadlines are not compromised. You can do easier projects first and then proceed to the harder ones. Be sure to do this if you still have more time before all the deadlines.
Make a Strategic and Feasible Schedule
After you make your priority list, make a schedule that is possible to achieve. To make your schedule strategic, you need to have enough time to make all your projects. Emergencies and unexpected events should also be considered in making a schedule. That’s why you need to make extra time for contingencies. One way to identify how much time you must allow for contingencies and unexpected events is to evaluate your previous experiences.
Get Some Help From the Technology
In education, technology is already known to be a useful tool for gathering, storing, and organizing information. Aside from the fact that the Internet provides endless information that you can use for your projects and assignments, there are also applications available on the web that can make your tasks easier.
The best tool to use for scheduling is the events calendar. It is best that you put your schedules on a calendar so that you will not forget them, and you can track the number of days remaining before each deadline. Customize your events calendar so that you can access important dates wherever you are.
Meeting the deadline is surely a hard thing to achieve if you do not allow enough time to do all your tasks. Many students know the importance of scheduling, but they find it hard to follow because they are probably not doing it right. More than having just the will to avoid cramming and late submissions, you must also find resources that will help you to stick with your schedule.
