motivatedmyself said: Hi :) My exam is just around the corner. I'm having a problem to study because i'm so busy with my school's activities. I can't manage my time well. And another problem is i'm not good in english. I can't write and speak in english well. Do you have any advice on how to solve this problem? I hope you can help me. Thank you :) Sya :)


Hi there! Thank you for your question.

Question 1) Managing your time
Everybody is different, but I think you need to dicipline yourself when you have a lot to do. What works for me is to organize a detailed scedule for every single day until your exams. I write down what needs to be done that day. You can also write at what time during the day you will study. It will take you some time to set up the plan, but when you have done it you won’t ever be stuck thinking “what should I do now?” and panicing because of how much you have to do - you just do what your schedule says, which will save you a lot of time. Also, you know that if you stick to your plan, you will get everything done in time. I know this keeps me more calm. Make sure you try to keep your plan realistic. It’s very unmotivating not being able to do everything you have planned.

Another tip is to stop “counting hours”. By this I mean to stop thinking that the higher amount of ours spent on studying, the better. I know it’s very easy to think “I’ve only studies x hours today, I’m going to fail!”. The truth is, the time you spend studying is really not that important. It’s how much you learn during your study session that matters. This means you can do very well in school/college/uni even with a lot of other activities going on. It’s all about being effective and mentally present when studying.

You say you are busy with your school’s activites. Maybe you have some time in between to squeeze in a little studying? If you travel a lot, try reading on the train/bus if you can. Even in situations where you don’t have your books with you, you can think about what you have studied earlier that day or week. This activates your brain in a completely different way then reading does.

Question 2) Struggling with English
First of all, I think your English looks great. To get better at it, you just have to practice. Also, it is very important to know what your weakness is. A person is not just “bad in English”, there is always something more specific that one struggles with. If you have a written exam coming up, look at older papers and notice what mistakes you have made in the past. We tend to do the same mistakes over and over again if we don’t point out those mistakes to ourselves and really let them sink in. You can also try setting up a test exam for yourself to see how you handle the situation, and then check how well you did. Maybe you can find someone to help you rate/grade your paper.

I hope at least parts of my answer were helpful to you. Remember to stay positive and be conifident in yourself and your own knowledge when exams are coming up. Remember that usually the more we know, the less we think we know… Good luck with your exams!

How to manage your time


Hey guys!

So a lot of you have started school again and have been sending in A LOT of asks and mails about how to put a decent schedule together, how to manage your time and how to prioritise things on your schedule. 

I figured it’d be easier to type up an entire post about this instead, and before you go on any further, please bare in mind that this is just a suggestion, modify it the way you see fit or don’t follow it at all, it’s up to you :)
