Do the basic's correct automatically things will fall in place. Do your work at the right given time, if you delay for sure u will cross the deadline & even after crossing the deadline you wont complete your work

If you want to complete your coursework on time the key is preparation. Make sure that you have all your resources and information beforehand, then dedicate and hour or two each night towards your assignments. If this doesn't work for you maybe you can make a planner and set a few block hours each week when you know you are available to study.

Make a schedule of due dates as they are assigned by your teachers. Then break down that list by what is due each week and then go even further by writing what is due each day. And then check off the work from the list as you go on to finish that task. It's all about how effectively you manage time.

Break it down into smaller chunks, which you can tackle one at a time. It's always best to start with the 'harder pieces' first, so that you're not leaving them / avoiding them until last on purpose. If you are still struggling to complete on time, you could ask for an extension? Most importantly, don't over do it! Make sure you take sufficient breaks when required.

It's been a few years since I completed my engineering. I was quite a lazy student and usually ended up doing my work at the last moment. That might not reflect on me so well but I can tell you one thing, if you have your mind focused to complete a task and a professor after you, there is nothing that can stop you. Just ensure you get plenty of sleep after the task is done. P.S.: This advice is also applicable to project work

Start to list your coursework in an urgent order. If it's hard for you to start working it from the urgent one, tries doing the easiest one first, and after you grasp your work pace, start finishing your urgent work.

I have felt like this before, it can be overwhelming to have a lot of deadlines and it can cause a lot of worry and stress. The method that worked best for me breaking everything down and making plans. I also tried to focus on the bigger picture. I said to myself that if I work hard and complete my coursework I will be one step closer to my goal which was to become a teacher. Everyone is different and I think the 7 Cups of Tea Guide on Test Anxiety is really helpful. Best of luck!

Pace yourself, my personal method is to work for 25 minutes then have a 5 minute break to make sure the work isn't too tedious.

You have to just keep at it. If you do it and don't procrastinate you will finish it. Study too. :D!

I would say to stay motivated. I'm having to do this too. It's hard, but what's been helping me is the fact that I now do everything in one sitting. A lot of work, but when you're finished you have a sense of relief because you would be finished.

It's difficult but possible. Organizing helps a lot, do not underestimate the load of work. Also it helps to remind yourself how it would feel to be done and why it makes sense to start early.

Don't procrastinate. Do a little coursework everyday, especially if you have the habit to wait till the last minute to complete assignments. Make a written note of all the deadlines and when certain tasks need to be completed and work accordingly. You can begin working on the task that needs to be turned in at the earliest date, then work on the others.

arrange your schedule with times and time slots for breaks. never work too long on one topic - that breaks stimulation and gets repetitive. try to change your courseworks around and rotate what you're doing until it's complete.

Planning..the most important step to accomplish anything...from projects at your work place to your studies. Know your final goal..then divide it into sub parts...and then focus on those sub parts given them appropriate time.Like a bottom up approach..you start from the sub parts and consequently reach to your final goal. for example..if you are concerned about your course and you have five subjects to complete in 6 months ( just an example) reserve days of a week for each subject..keeping in mind you also need some free time for yourself, you don't want your plan to exhaust you..keep it light yet effective. and it's recommended not to go with one subject at a time..to give you some variety. And yes, I know it's hard to follow plans...but so it is to complete the entire syllabus in last few days ( no doubt, we can do it..but then we tend to focus more on the deadline rather than on the quality of our work)

Make a timetable and try your best to follow it. Also stay calm and don't panic........ Try finishing it at least a day before the deadline.
