Ep 2 Student Led Study Hacks - Time Saving Tips Revealed - Prioritize
From Anne-Marie Langford
Student-Led Study Hacks Hi! Paige here, a UON Learning Development Mentor. I’m also a student at the university, and I’m here to share my top Uni tips with you today! Let’s dive right into it with today’s theme of: Time Saving Tips Revealed. So let’s get an answer to today’s burning student question. Today's question comes from a student and he wanted to know..."How do I prioritize my time? I am struggling to get everything done." It can feel like a lot when you have a lot of tasks to get done especially if you have a lot of conflicting demands on your time. Here is an approach that can help - Try creating a to-do list with a major and minor task column at the top of a page or word document. You can then break those down further into categories of importance, by adding columns down the left hand side. Let’s call them A, B, and C. Those categories will rate the urgency of a task, eg:
A – Must complete today
B – Must complete this week
C – Must complete this month
Once you have inserted your tasks into the sheet and seen where they fall on your list, you can start to allocate time to each task. Some may be as simple as sending an email or calling to make an overdue appointment, while others may require an hour, two, maybe more! Remember to factor in some rest time as well as social time too, it’s important to keep yourself healthy and happy whilst slaying your tasks! Don’t forget, answers to more questions, links to show notes, resources and more are all available on the Skills Hub. Simply type skills hub Northampton into google and away you go.
