Every instructor gives the student homework. This is not only daily or weekly but mid-term and at the end of the term as well. There are different kinds of work that are given. These could be essays, thesis, dissertations or some sort of research to be carried out.
Here are some recommendations how you can excel at your homework.
- a) The key to excelling is to plan. You need to break it down based on a day planner or a calendar. You need to write down what is needed to be done and when it is due. In case of essays, you need to mention the number of words the dissertation should contain, the topic of the thesis, as well as the style, in case it has not to be a freelance style.
- b) The next important step is to understand what is expected of you. You can clarify points immediately with the instructor instead of waiting till you start doing the essay.
- c) You should then create a space which has the least amount of distraction so it will help you concentrate better.
- d) You should choose the order in which you want to accomplish the tasks at hand and start with the most difficult one and dedicate the most time to the most valuable assignments.
- e) A timetable should be made to ensure you do not exceed the time allocated.
Working on the assignments
- a) You should see that you have all the tools and necessary material required before you attempt to start; else you will have to break the flow and be distracted by searching for the materials required.
- b) Whatever distractions are there should be shut off or eliminated as far as possible.
- c) You should not freelance between different tasks but concentrate on them one at a time
- d) You need to take a break every hour so that you rest your mind and are able to concentrate for the next spell.
- e) You should give yourself incentives for tasks completed
- f) You should review your work.
Making time for yourself
- a) You should not procrastinate but get down to the essay as soon as possible
- b) Use the time between classes or when there is free time at school to start on the dissertations or research
All these methods will help you excel at your homework.
