I Have Lots Of Homework To Do: Coping With The Assignments Effectively

There will be days when you will have no homework at all. And then there will be days when all you can see is homework, there is so much of it. It can be an overwhelming experience when you are faced with a mountain of work and no plausible way of completing it all in time.

Fortunately, we are here to provide you with some great tips on how to avoid this situation in the first place but also on how to cope with your assignments effectively.

Being organized will save the day

Homework will pile up if you are not organized. On the other hand, if you stay on top of your scheduling and organization, you will be finishing off assignments in record time. Here is what you need to do:

  • Get a Diary
  • Diarize everything. The moment you get an assignment, put it in your diary and mark the date when it is due. Also makes concise notes about the length and importance of the assignment.

  • Prioritize
  • When the time comes to do your work, prioritize the work that is due first. Further rank the list of priority based upon the complexity of the work. Do the toughest assignments first so that as you go long, the work gets easier.

  • Materials
  • The single biggest time waster during work is the need to get up to get a book, a pencil, a ruler or a pen. Before you begin, set up your study table so you have everything in place. Extra note pads, a calculator, a jug of water, tissues, your laptops charger and pencils; get everything. Remember to bring the books you need from your locker when you are leaving school for the day.

Do not be distracted

The thing that will stop you in your tracks while doing your homework is being distracted. While you are working, there is absolutely no need for the following, in any order of appearance:

  • Mobile phone
  • Laptop, unless you are working on it
  • Television
  • Sleep
  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • News
  • Sports
  • Walking the dog
  • Walking your goldfish
  • Watering the plants
  • Gossiping with your neighbor

You get the idea.

To avoid distractions, it is always a good idea to find a quiet room to study in. It also helps that it is the same place you study every day so that a sort of feeling of comfort develops over time. Good luck!
