Many people suffer from procrastination. Procrastination is when you keep putting a task aside for later and it never gets done. The most important tool for dealing with this is a daily/weekly study schedule that is designed to suit your individual needs. Set it out in a tabular format showing each day of the week.
There are several important points to remember when writing yourself a study schedule:
Firstly, ensure that you have enough leisure activities (i.e. time with friends, family time and study breaks). Remember that you must unwind. But only take what you need. Secondly, the more detailed you make the schedule, the better chance you have of sticking to it. Try to include the topic you plan to revise or the past paper you plan to do in a particular time slot.
And finally, the most important point…
Set realistic goals. Aim as high as you feel that you can achieve; you are the only one who can judge this! Others may offer opinions or advice but be sure to follow your instincts. However, be honest with yourself and remember that you must remain committed to the work that will get you there. Don’t study relentlessly as you may exhaust yourself after a short period and feel like giving up. The thing to remember is that you will be studying day after day, so if you plan to work super hard one day, remember that you need to study the next day as well. You can work as many hours in a day as you wish, but you must gradually work up to it.
