Creating your schedule
1 List all of the things needed to be done
2 Figure out what you need to do for each subject
Read, Write, Present, Communicate things
What is the time required for each subject?
3 Prioritize the list of subjects
Sources to compare
4 Divide available time in study blocks
study at the same time everyday so you dont have to memorize the schedule everytime.
5 Reserve time for non-academic activites
Add extra time for sleep exercise and rest
depending upon urgency of tests, reorganize events accordingly
6 fill in study blocks
ONLY DO FOR ONE WEEK THEN ADJUST
Prioritize poor areas first then cover more confident regions
Following Your Schedule
1 Make the most of your scheduled off time
View off time as a time of recharging
Make sure to get away from study space
Look forward to the off time
2 Take short breaks and stick to them
Take 5-10 min breaks but no longer
Set an alarm
REFRESH IS THE GOAL
3 Stick to the schedule
Get into the habit of looking at the schedule everyday to avoid the out of sight out of mind trap
Consistency breeds the STUDY MODE
4 Tell others about your schedule
Consider your Schedule and Personality
1 Assess your current schedule
How many hours currently studying
how many hours a week you currently devote to entertainment
How many hours spent with friend and family
Do some quick math to see where you could cut. usually entertainment is biggest, start there.
2 Take into account learning style
Combo works best!
3 Reflect upon your work ethic
Do you take a lot of breaks? add extra time into your schedule
Procrastinate? Add more time before deadline when planning our studying
Pretty solid work ethic? plan to finish early.
