Feeling swamped? Getting Organised

Keeping to your Schedule/Planner

The best way to keeping to your schedule is to ensure that it is working for you.

Once you have your planner,

  • Update it regularly.
  • Evalutate it regularly.
  • Take into account different events or bigger assignments from week to week to ensure other stuff doesn’t get pushed aside.
  • Have it in a clear place where you study and monitor it carefully.
  • If you feel you are not abiding by it, review it and make a new one.
  • Remember, without a planner or schedule, a lot of stuff will be left to the last minute and that could lead to bad results and a very stressful few weeks. Avoid this now by tiding up all your work into one simple wall chart!
