- Start by figuring out what assignments and exams you have between now and the last day of the semester. List them out, in order of due date, so that you have a really clear idea of what is left on your plate.
- Once you have all your assignments and exams listed clearly, begin to think through what needs to happen to complete that task. If it's an assignment, what are the requirements? A 10 page research paper is going to require very different things from you than an in-class, closed-book final exam.
- Next, break each assignment down into actionable steps - these should be your SMART Goals. If it's going to be a closed book exam, then those study goals might involve collecting all notes, creating flash carts, filling out a study guide, etc. If you need to write a research paper, then your goals are going to involve looking for relevant articles, taking notes, writing an outline, fleshing-out the outline into a paper, and revising / editing.
- Now, get out your calendar and start to figure out your deadlines and timelines for the various projects and assignments. Maybe this week you need to collect research for a paper AND organize your notes for another class. Then next week you need to create an outline AND make flashcards. Make sure that, as much as possible, you give yourself reasonable tasks that you actually can complete in the day / times you have allocated.
You can do this. You will get through the next few weeks. You are smart enough, capable enough, competent enough. I'd say good luck, but I know you don't need it.
