‘Time and tide wait for none’ – It is true in every sense of the word. An individual should understand the value of time in order to attain success in all aspects of life. To use time in your favour , you need to develop a few habits in your personal life

Slide5:

1- Planning is key Most of the students get on with a task without planning further. In no time, they either feel confused and lazy to do the task. So planning is important. It is true that it will take time. But in reality, it will save time for you. If you are not good at planning, one trick you can use is writing down what do you have to do and tick off each task as you complete

Slide6:

2 - Set your own deadline Each academic task comes with a deadline. To use time properly, set a deadline before the actual deadline. It is taking control of your work. When you finish the task on your deadline, you get plenty of time to revise the task or make changes in the task. It not only enhances the quality of the work, but also gives you ample amount of time to assess your work. Alternatively, you can hire professional  assignment assistance  services to complete the work before the deadline.

Slide7:

3 - Buy a planner or set alarms It only takes a few minutes of your time. You mark important dates on the planner and carry it with you. If you fear you will not forget to check the planner, then set alarms. With the help of your Smartphone, you can trigger the alarm against the set deadline. To be on the safer side, mark the date before the deadline and set a reminder on your phone

Slide8:

4 - Prioritize your tasks Many students would say, ‘I do it all the time’. But are they doing it correctly? Many students make the mistakes of attempting to complete several tasks at a time because they think they are equally important. But it actually reduces your productivity. So make a to-do-list. Write the task on the top you want to complete ASAP, then so on. So to get the best result, you need to stick to the to-do-list.

Slide9:

5 - Buy organizers and arrange important things properly To save time and energy, you need to be organized. Maintain files for each assignment and keep in their respective drawers. Buy organizers for keeping things at their places, like pen, pencil, clips, markers, and other stationery products. Staple important documents and put them into a proper folder. If you become little organized, it will save time that spends on unnecessary searching.

Slide18:

Students are mainly judged on how well they can apply learned knowledge into practice. Once students learn a new concept, theory or even idea, they are typically asked to apply it through assignments, projects and examinations. Students are likely to get poor grades if they fail to do so. It is true that if you don’t want to be one of them, you need to involve a few new habits in your life

Slide19:

11 - Use visual learning style Visualization is a good strategy for helping students in learning. Whenever you see an image of what you are learning or a video on the concept, you use those images and videos to store the learning concept or idea in your brain. Studies say images and video make more impact compared to the text.

Slide20:

12 - Take up mock tests Mock tests help you assess what you have learned so far. Before every examination, take out time for mock tests. You need to set a paper by following the pattern of the exam paper. Then allocate time to complete the paper. It is best that you give yourself less time compared to the actual exam period. Be true to yourself while grading the paper.

Slide21:

13 - Analyze a text In college, students are assessed on how well they apply their analytical skills in presenting ideas. Most of the students struggle to showcase their critical thinking skills. Needless to say, college coursework comprises enough assignments; you don’t need another one to add on to your burden. But while working on an assignment, make use of your analytical skills. While researching or taking notes, find reasons why you want to support someone’s view or defy it. In this way, you will be able to apply learned knowledge into practice.

Slide22:

14 - Break the monotony of the life Sometimes, studying all the time can be paralyzing. Spending hours in the library or hovering over the books for hours can lead you to saturated life. You need to break the monotony of the life, like going out, meeting new people, and hanging out with friends. You may ask what is the relation between meeting new people and applying learned knowledge. It just takes you away from the inner monologue.

Slide23:

15 - Know ‘yourself’ In order to perform, you need to understand your strengths. You need to identify what triggers work for you. It can be simply listening to music or even finding a quiet place of work. You need to test yourself in every situation in order to understand what is best for you. If you stay feel all motivated and productive in the first half of the day, try to complete critical and crucial tasks in morning.

Slide24:

16 - Decide your work approach The stages between ‘knowing’ and ‘applying’ require a pause. You need to adopt new ideas, new approaches and new skills to apply learned knowledge. You need to step back, reflect, internalize and consciously decide which strategy and skills to use to attain success. Learning does not end with college life. It goes on, as you grow older. Making accustomed with the most effective study techniques is one of the greatest gifts that you can give to yourself.
