1. Reward yourself for studying and working on assignments. However, you need to do this after you’ve done everything you planned to do!
2. Study with others (But make sure you work and don’t just socialise.)
3. Keep your long-term goals in sight. They’ll slip through your fingers if you don’t do the work.
4. Cut out distractions. If you’re surrounded by things that you’d rather do than work, you’ll probably abandon your boring studying.
5. Develop an interest in the subjects you’re studying. That way, the work won’t be such a drag.
6. Take regular breaks. These should be at logical points in your work. That makes it easier to resume your studying, and to remember what you were working on before.
7. Work somewhere bright, warm and comfortable.
8. Set reasonable study goals for each session.
9. Start early in the day at weekends, and early in the evenings on week days. The longer you put it off your studying, the harder and more onerous it seems.
10. Just do it. It’s surprisingly rewarding to do something that’s tough!
