It’s been a week since summer has ended so the study season is starting. Are you ready for your classes, exams and assignments? In Xior Lofttown we are ready to see you give it all this semester. Planning your study time well is very important to reach all your goals and what you want to achieve in the future. And, apart from planning your life in the residence hall, you will also have to plan your studies. We know that it is a difficult task, even more so if you have just started university.
First of all, you have to have to set your goals and ensure you take care of everything, both with your studies and in your day-to-day activities. You will have days when you are going to wake up eager to do everything, especially now that you are starting the semester, and other days when it is going to be a bit more difficult for you to catch up with your agenda.
For this reason, at the Xior Lofttown student residence in Barcelona we will give you some advice to make planning your studies as easy as possible.
Having an agenda or calendar
There are many ways of knowing what you have to do on a daily basis, the best thing to do is to choose the best tool for you. It can be an agenda or a calendar, or also online platforms that will help you a lot in the organization and planning of your work or exams such as:
- Google Drive
- Google Calendar
Sort your subjects by difficulty
You can order your subjects from most to least important or also order them by difficulty. Dedicate more time and especially the first hours of study to those subjects that you think may cost you a little more, because when you are more tired and unmotivated, then you will only have the ones that are easier for you to study.
This is a great trick to avoid having to deal with the most difficult subjects when you have no more energy left, take advantage of it!
Short-term goals are one of the best things you can do to keep your motivation up and keep you motivated so that you can gradually achieve what you set out to do. You can start by thinking about one main goal but it is always better to have several short-term goals or objectives that are realistic, clear and specific, that you know you will be able to achieve them, also something very important to set your objectives or goals is that you have to establish the time in which you want to achieve them.
For example, you can start by making daily goals, study one or two subjects per day, or finish a paper in one or two hours.
It is essential to find a place to study or do your university work, Xior Lofttown offers you a study room where you can study, work, etc. But if you are one of those people who like to study in different places, Barcelona offers you many options.
