1. Start early!

Like, today. That way, you can take it slow and do a little bit each day instead of cramming twelve weeks of material the night before your exam. You don't have to do a lot every day, just read five pages or something. Your future self will thank you.

3. Prioritize and make a plan

Personally, I can't jump between projects. I’d rather just focus entirely on one thing, finish that and move onto the next, so I usually work on my to-do list in order. For me, prioritizing and compartmentalizing simplifies everything. When I write down my due dates, I also look at my calendar and set aside certain days to tackle each assignment. Mapping out the next month can help to reduce April anxiety because you don’t have to worry about not having time to get everything done. If you follow the plan, you should have enough time.

6. Don’t forget about self-care!

Remember to do things for yourself, whether it's spending time with a friend or spending a Sunday in bed watching your favourite Netflix series. Small breaks to recharge will actually help you get your work done. Also - please, sleep.
