General tips for organising the A, B, C time-ways
A. Semester Planner (Collect one from the SLC)
Choose colours for:
- RMIT holidays
- holidays from work
- assignment due dates
- rough draft due dates
- exam dates
- personal/ family commitments eg. weddings
- number the weeks of attendance at RMIT
B. Weekly Planner (Use your RMIT university diary)
- Your RMIT University diary opens out to show the week at a glance. This can be very useful. Have a specific goal for each study session
- Make a weekly timetable with regular study blocks. Don't be afraid to change it around if it doesn't work
- Mark in your study times. Divide them into a structure like this one:
- 3 minutes - decide what to do
- 25 minutes - do it!
- 2 minutes - review it
- Do this twice and then have a break.
C. Daily planner (Post-It notes or recycled paper strips)
- Each day begin a new list
- Tick off the tasks as you complete them
- Do not begin something that you will not finish
Stay healthy - factor in a walk, a run, play, relax and eat well.
