College Students And Homework: How To Get Your Assignments Done In Time


After spending tiresome days in college, students are offered a huge roster of homework in different subjects. Completing all the algebra problems, grammar part in English, reading and memorizing stuff and dealing with chemical symbols becomes a herculean task during evening when they come back after spending whole day in college. Followed by that if they evaluate themselves further as in how much they have understood in the class, it becomes more distressing.

How to deal with such issues?

  1. Plan your homework: Understand your assignment first and jot it down in your homework planner. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to ask your teacher immediately instead of puzzling yourself later on. Also pay attention how long that assignment will take to complete.
  2. Use the surplus time in school and complete the homework: Pay a visit to study halls and collect the stuff and complete as much tasks as you can.
  3. Pace yourself: Think this way, how much time you need to spend at home if you do not complete the homework at school and plan thereby. Usually college students are supposed to spend an average of 4-5 hours at home completing their assignments to match the speed of college curriculum apart from gym and lunch. Remember you have other activities to perform too.
  4. Select a place that is devoid of distractions: Choose a place away from kitchen and television. Be very sceptical regarding such places and go to aloof places to complete your assignments and facilitate learning on time.
  5. Pick up a desk: Avoid comfy beds. Desk need not necessarily be larger ones but should be big enough to keep your stuff.
  6. Tackle the hardest assignment primarily: It’s because you are fresh at this time. Avoid temptation for the easiest ones. Utilize your maximum mental and physical power on challenging assignments. Once you are tired, you still can do easier ones later on as they require lesser concentration.
  7. Seek assistance once stuck somewhere: Do not feel obsessed to seek somebody’s help. After spending few minutes on the problem you should seek assistance of an adult, friend, or sibling verbally, over phone, through emails or chats. Do not engage yourself in unnecessary chatting and gossips.
  8. Breaks are must: If you start losing the attention, take break. Some have huge attention span while others have a shorter one. 15 minutes break is must after every hour. Once your homework is completed, spend some additional time revising it and then pack your bags getting ready for a fresh start in the next morning.
