How to Stay on Top of Homework

Today's post is all about keeping up to date with school assignments outside of the classroom. Because of the subjects I take at school, I get little to no homework throughout the year and then an overwhelming amount at the end. While its not always possible to avoid homework stress, here are a few different ways you can make handling the workload a bit easier. Especially if you're like me and get all your assignments at once!

Keep a Planner to Record All Your Assignments And Their Due Dates
It's always good to keep a study planner with you so that the moment you receive homework, you can record it down straight away. When you know the deadlines for each of your assignments, it will help you to complete the work accordingly. People tend to gravitate towards the task they are most looking forward to doing however it's better to refer to due dates when deciding what assignment to work on first. Ordering your assignments by their deadline is the most effective way to get all your homework handed in on time and having a study planner will make sure you're prioritising the right task over another.

Set Yourself a Time Frame And Then Stick With it
Time management is essential when it comes to staying on top of your homework. Decide how long you want to spend on something and then follow it through, otherwise you can end up going overboard on just one task. This is especially important when you're given a lot of homework at once. If you focus too long on one assignment, the others lose out. Try and be consistent with your timeframes because then you're not working hours on one task only to work 15 minutes on the next.

Don't Leave Things to The Last Minute
It's understandable to set your homework aside when you have other chores and commitments to attend to but the best way to keep up your assignments is to get them out of the way as soon as you can. Don't wait until the night before to complete them. If you're really busy outside of the classroom,  make sure you're making the most of the down time you get inside of school such as lunch breaks and study periods. The amount of work you complete during that time is just less work you'll have to complete later on.

Know What Conditions You Study Best in
Find out when you're most switched on and where you feel most inspired, whether that's alone or with others, outdoors or indoors, morning or night. When it comes to studying, having a time and place that you can can rely on is really beneficial. Everybody's different so make sure you know what works best for you and you only.

Hope this was helpful in some way! Thanks for reading!
