1. Break It Down:

Big assignments? Break them into smaller chunks. Trust me; it's way less overwhelming and will make you more efficient.  

2. Your Phone is Your Friend:

Use your phone for good – set reminders and keep track of due dates. But keep it on and do not disturb when you're studying and doing assignments. 

3. Weekday Routine:

Make a simple schedule for weekdays. It helps you remember where you need to be and when. For example, Monday is math day, Tuesday is science, Wednesday is English, etc. 

4. Make time for yourself:

Sleep, eat, and do things you love. The happier you are, the better you will be at handling school stuff.

5. Learn to Say No to Plans: 

Got a packed schedule, but your friends want to hang out? It's okay to say no sometimes. Stay home and get things done nothing will happen if you miss one hang out.
