Tips for being a super-organised student

posted 2 hours ago by Amy

I have always admired students who hand their homework in on time and never forget to do it. Me, on the other hand, … OK, I admit. I’m terrible at getting myself organised!

But lately I’ve started keeping a small study diary. I write down everything I need to do and when it needs to be done by. Then I write a reminder a few days before the date just in case. It’s helping.

So I was wondering, what are your tips for getting organised? Post a comment below. I’m hoping we can all share some tips to teach us all better study skills.

Hana

Good question, Amy. I always spend about five minutes at the end of the day tidying up the desktop on my computer. I make a backup of important documents. I delete things I don’t need any more and put everything into the correct folder.

Amy

Nice tip, Hana. I think it’s a good idea to do a little bit of tidying up every day. Then it becomes a habit and your desktop is always organised.

Gloria

The most important thing is to start studying a few weeks before the exams and not leave it until the night before! That’s just common sense, I think.

Amy

Thanks, Gloria! I agree.

Lou

Hi, Amy. My tip is to have a big noticeboard in your bedroom, divided into different sections. I’ve got one. It’s a whiteboard. I’ve got a section for each school subject and another one for other stuff. I use board pens to write reminders and I make sure I look at it every day. The best part is when I remove something from the board!

Amy

Great tip, Lou. I’ve got a cork board with pins. I use it in the same way.

I haven't got super tip, but I usually write all my homework in a small notebook. Every day, I will open it and know what I need do. Also I suggest everyone to study early in the evening so that you won't feel sleepy. Moreover, when you're stydying, you should not use your smartphone as it will distract you.

I am not an organised student. I don't manage the time logically, and sometimes I rush to do my essay . However, I am trying to become a good organizer by making a list of must-dos during the day.

In my opinion, I think we should to arrange time table reasonable. We spend five minute for Monday to draw up a list of works on the week, You have to put the important thing on the top of your list. Then, you to mark works you complete. Therefore, you never forget my work. I'm hope my opinion will help you.

I have to admit that I’m not a good organizer, but I have tried my best to improve my study habit by creating my own tips. My tips for studying English are learning and enlarging vocabulary day by day because new words play an essential role for 4 English skills. I learn from many sources and study whenever i have free time. You don’t need to study in a stereotype, just choose your favorite topics to read, listen, write or speak so you can see that English is not boring like you had thought before.

I don't have a definite advice, but I can say that an excellent organization is the basis of everything, and to be a good student the first thing we need is to divide all our courses in a correct way, which we can understand, on the other hand try to Taking notes in a notebook will help us to have a better organization, since that way we will develop some skills. And having a study section would not be a bad idea, and the correct distribution of our time will help a lot.

To become a superorganized student we must take into account all the things that they leave us during school and write everything down in a notebook, also arriving at your home you can organize your time by setting time limits for each task they leave us. As long as we don't have any distractions.

Maybe making study plans for the week, keeping the table clean while studying, avoiding any kind of distractions, doing homeworks in time etc are some of the tips for being a super organized student.

I think that I'm organised because I never forget to do my homework or that I have to study. When I start to do homework (in my bedroom) I see what have I got to do on my school diary; then I do a list on a post-it and then I start :-))
(Tell me if there are mistakes)

My tip as a orginasied student is to plan your day so you can have time to study after school and do other such of things after school. A calander is something I would recommend that will help you get track on further exams and just have your whole day even more orginased.

I use a small notebook that I write all my homework. Then I never wait to finish it. If the subject is hard I try to finish it and do what I can. I’m fairly ambitios student and organised. My tips to be a successfull student is to take your education for real. Work and work untill you finish every single homework. My hardest subject is English. I would like to be good at English as well others in here. Hope you lucky

The best tip for being a successful student is listening carefully everything that your teacher has to say (and taking notes of course).

I haven't got super tip, But I wrote all my homework in small notebook or sign the pages then put books in my schoolbag directly. Also I suggest everyone to study exams early. I know everyone say that but it's really useful. So you won't feel bad at exam day and you will obtain a good result.

actually I always do my homework and submit it at time , but when it comes to preparing my exams , I really get a hard time .
I always start to prepare my exams two days before they start and I guess that's not really what I should do
(tell me if there are mistakes)

Hello there, I read once about some method of organizing which you divide a page for four sections 1 : important & urgent 2: important & not urgent
3: unimportant & urgent 4: unimportant & not urgent
By putting stuff in each section , I know which subject I should start with and what to do later

I am more or less organised.
I am more organised when I know what I am going to do.
For example in the weekend I prepared my clothes for the next day at night.

Hello this is a tip that I sometimes use
Review your classes the same day and prepare the topics for the next day; In this way, refresh the information that serves you to apprehend the new.

I am pretty organised at my homeworks. I saved my things to be done at my phone calendar. It reminds me what should I do. I recomend this method.

PS: Tell me if I had typos or mistakes.
