5 tips for completing your assignments on time!

1st Tip: Use a Planning System

A homework planner is something that most of you are already familiar with. It has the dates, your school topics, and a large amount of free space for you to fill down your homework assignments. If you have a planner, make use of it. With technology seemingly doing everything for us, writing with a pencil or pen may seem ancient, but the physical process of jotting down an assignment into one of those small squares (Language Arts test tomorrow - STUDY TONIGHT) can really help you remember that homework.

Plus, when it's time to go for the day, all you have to do is open up your planner to see which books, folders, and binders you need to take home with you so you don't forget anything important that evening.


Some individuals despise using calendars. They'd sooner walk through a strew of broken glass than write something down in a planner. That's just OK. One kid carried a wadded-up piece of paper in his pocket on which he scribbled his homework. It was OK since it worked for him. If you don't like using plans or crumpled up notes, your phone can be really useful. Simply download a productivity software and enter your tasks there. Alternatively, keep track of any required tasks in your phone's notes area. Alternatively, before leaving the classroom, take a picture of each teacher's homework board. If you absolutely don't want to use a planner, simply send yourself a text after each class with your homework assignments for the evening.

Regardless of the planning technique you like, make use of it. Once you've gotten each item inside your bag, cross it off your list. Because your brain can only handle so much information at once, you must write down your assignment if you want to do it on time.


Tip 2: Rank and Prioritise your assignments!

Not every assignment is created equal. When you're doing your homework at home, it's highly advised that you adopt a prioritising system. Consider using a system similar to this:


"1 Assignments":

The value of a "1" assignment cannot be overstated. If this project is not done tonight, there will be serious penalties. For example:

  • I'm studying for a big test that I have tomorrow.

  • I'm working on a large project that is due tomorrow.

  • I'm working on a high-scoring essay that's due tomorrow.

"2 Assignments":

The importance of a "2" assignment is immense. If this project is not finished tonight, there will be some serious repercussions.

For example,

  • I'm studying for a quiz that I have tomorrow.

  • I'm working on a school assignment that's due tomorrow.

  • I'm reading a chapter that's due the next day.

"3 Assignments":

By the end of the week, a "3" task must be completed.

For instance,

  • you may be studying for a spelling exam on Friday.

  • By Friday, you must have written a blog and posted it on the class bulletin board.

  • Finish a book that you will be quizzed on on Friday.

"4 Assignments":

A "4" assignment is currently being worked on and must be completed by test day or the end of the quarter. For example,

  • Reviewing chapters for the midterm test

  • Working on a long-term project, research paper, or other long assignment that is due at the conclusion of the quarter.

  • Putting together a package that isn't due for another two weeks.


After you've prioritised your tasks, finish the 1s first, then the 2s, and so on, working your way down. That way, if you're rushed for time because someone invited you over for dinner and your mother insisted on you spending the evening playing bridge with her despite the fact that you have hours of homework ahead of you, you won't miss anything crucial to your grade.


Tip 3:First and foremost, finish the most difficult assignment.


So, if you despise writing essays (but why should you when all you have to do is follow these essay tips?) You also have a significant essay due tomorrow that you must complete. In addition, you must study for a big math test, write a social studies blog by Friday, prepare for the ACT next month, and complete your science homework from class. The essay and the math test would be your "1" tasks. The science worksheet is your "2" task, the blog is your "3" assignment, and preparing for the ACT is your "4" assignment.


You could think that starting with the scientific worksheet would be a good idea because you enjoy science, but it would be a major error. Begin with the "1" tasks and complete the essay first. Why? You despise it for that reason. And doing the most difficult project first gets it off your mind, out of your homework cache, and makes everything else seem really simple. Once you've finished the essay, doing the scientific assignment will be a breeze. Why deprive yourself of happiness?


Then, once you've finished the work that has to be done first, you may concentrate on studying for the ACT. It's that simple.


Tip #4: Schedule Breaks

Some individuals feel that sitting down to do schoolwork entails practically parking your rear in a chair and not moving for the next four thousand hours. That is one of the worst study concepts ever devised. Your brain can only stay concentrated for approximately 45 minutes (maybe even less for some of you) before it goes crazy and wants to make you stand up and do the Roger Rabbit dance. As a result, plan your study time to include breaks. Work for 45 minutes, then take a 10-minute break to do anything your age group like. Then repeat the process. It appears to be something like this:


Time for homework:


  • Work on "1" task for 45 minutes, starting with the poorest.

  • 10 minutes: grab a bite to eat, play Pokemon Go!, then go through Instagram

  • 45 minutes: Continue working on "1" assignments. You're quite aware that you didn't complete the task.

  • Do some jumping jacks, do the Macarena, and paint your nails for 10 minutes.

  • 45 minutes: Finish any "2" tasks and perhaps any 3s and 4s. Place all of your belongings in your backpack.

It is a taught talent to do your schoolwork on time. It takes some self-control, and not everyone is naturally self-controllable. So, while you're still in school, practise checking that you have everything you need for homework, prioritising your work, diving into the assignments you despise, and taking planned breaks. Isn't it worth it for you to get a good grade?


It is, without a doubt.
