Hey, it’s Julie 👋 Do you students ever feel like you’re burning the candle at both ends? It’s tough managing your studies whilst working a job, right? But there are a few steps you can take to help things run a little smoother…
👉Get clear on your deadlines
The very first thing you need to do is create a list of all your upcoming deadlines and exam dates. You don’t want important dates to creep up on you out of nowhere – that’s a sure way to throw you off your A game.
👉Create a timetable
One of the most effective ways for managing your workload is by breaking it down into sections and creating a timetable for completing it all. This way, everything is much more achievable.
👉Reduce your hours during exam period
Exam period isn’t the best time to be putting in overtime at work. Take some of the stress away by reducing your hours so you can focus. But don’t forget to give your boss advance notice so they have plenty of time to find a replacement.
👉Help your colleagues
When your colleagues can’t make it to work, help them out by swapping shifts. The next time you need to study instead of work, they’ll likely return the favour.
👉Use your commute
How many hours do you lose during your commute? Let me rephrase that: how many hours of study could you gain from your commute? Whether it’s reading a chapter of a book, or listening to lecture recordings, your daily commute can soon stack up to hours of study!
Good luck in your exams!
