Time Management

Using planners is a helpful way to manage your time, study more effectively, increase your productivity and reduce stress when you have multiple commitments.

  • A weekly planner helps you to keep track of all of your activities / task and stay on track. In your planner, write down all activities and tasks you have for the week - assessments, classes, study tasks (broken into manageable chunks), travel, work, sleep, special events and other regular activities (eg. sport, chores, childminding).
  • A term planner helps to get a full overview of what is coming up for you in the term. Include holidays, special events, exams and assessments.
