Managing Your Workload

Weighed down by your workload?

Overcome by your impending exams?

Just not able to finish that measly bit of homework due tomorrow?

We feel your pain. That’s why we reached out to our friends at (wait for it) ReachOut to see if they had any words of wisdom when it comes to managing school and uni loads (as well as any tips for making it through exams).

Here’s what they had to offer. Follow the links to their sage advice!

‘Exam Preparation’

“Preparing for exams is not just about studying effectively, although that is a big part of it. In fact, if you want to be super organised, your exam preparation can start as early as your very first class.”

‘Tips to help you through exams’

“There is no magic formula that can ensure you do well in exams. Pressure can motivate you, but if it’s getting to you, you can do something about that. Effective study before the exam is important. There are also strategies you can employ on the day to help you do as well as possible and stay on-track through the exam itself.”
