Deadlines: They are so rewarding to achieve – Whether we are talking about a project, an essay, an exam, presentation or research: everything needs a clear time-frame with clear deadlines. Here are tools and tips to stay on top of your deadlines!
Visualise with Calendar Tools!
When you first get your syllabus, make sure you write down all of your deadlines in your diary/ planner/ calendar! If you use several planners, make sure the deadline is written down in every one of them. Otherwise, you might mistake your time to be free when it is not!
2. Break up the Deadlines in Mini-deadlines
Make sure you don’t forget that deadlines need other in between-deadlines as well! Visualise what is realistic and take these deadlines as seriously as your final one!
3. Alarms are your Best Friends!
The good thing about planning digitally, is that you can accompany your due-dates with alarms that go off an hour, or maybe days before the moment of truth! Remind yourself about your deadlines a few days in advance, and a couple of hours beforehand.
4. Know when to Stop
Believe it or not, deadlines can be accompanied with fun. You need coffee sometimes, you need a chat or some lunch. Make sure you time your sessions that you spend on your studies, and remind yourself to take breaks. eFaqt Pro helps you to monitor this balance and alarm you when it is time for some caffeine!
5. Know when to start!
Proper rehearsals for an exam are important so you don’t lose time relearning content that is erased from your memory. Not only does eFaqt Pro tell you when to stop your breaks, but it also reminds you when to rehearse certain content. The reminders are based on what we know is scientifically proven to be most effective!
6. Reward Yourself
Don’t make it a long and winding road by forgetting to acknowledge your effort. Take yourself out to the candy shop after you finish 2 chapters, or have made an awesome mind map, or if you rehearsed your summary without making any mistakes!
