Study tips for Christmas holidays
Well done! First semester is over and congratulations freshers on completing your first semester at Edge Hill.
Christmas break is now well and truly underway and whilst we all love tucking into some mulled wine and pigs in blankets, I’m sure most of us have deadlines looming in the back of our minds. But, we don’t want our assignments to hold us back from enjoying the festivities and being back at home for a few weeks so here are a few tips on how to keep on top of your work over the Christmas period.
Don’t leave all until the last-minute!
This one is very important and probably something we have all been guilty of at some point. But, if you avoid leaving your assessments to the last-minute it will ease your stress and allow you to enjoy your time more.
Try and write your essays in chunks.
This will mean that if you do even 30 minutes of writing everyday your essay will be finished before you know it!
Plan! Plan! Plan!
This is something I have been doing a lot more of this year and it has definitely worked in my favour. By planning your essays your ideas will be more concise and you can spend more time evaluating critical material and you will hopefully see your marks significantly increase. Also, planning means you won’t be as stressed when writing an essay as you already know what you want to talk about it so you won’t be struggling for ideas
Finally, whilst essays and exams can take over our priorities, make sure you take full advantage of your Christmas break to rest and enjoy yourselves at home so that you are more than ready to begin second semester in the new year!
As always, Thank you for reading and I hope you all have a merry Christmas and a very happy new year 🙂
