Assignments can prove to be a nightmare if done at the last minute. This is because, without previous planning, the student will not have any notes or referral material when doing this. As a result, the assignment given will either be substandard or might even not be submitted at all. In order to ensure that you do not fall into this misery, you should consider the following steps to meeting your assignment deadline:
It is important to have a plan on how you are going to tackle the given assignment. Always have a time schedule on how and when to do the assignment. This should include the date of issue and also the date to be submitted. With this you will not find yourself in a last minute rush.
Do your research.
Doing research not only helps in saving time, but also makes your assignment valid in the sense that what you are submitting actually makes sense. In line with this, it is advisable that you attend all the lectures because all the questions always come from the lecturer’s notes. This should cut you the hustle of going to the library to do research work.
This applies to the assignments given as group work. Make sure you attend all the group meetings so that you know how far your group is to completing the assignment. Be in communication with the group leader as this gives you first hand information on how your assignment is coming along.
If the assignment requires typing or printing, make sure that this is done in good time to avoid the last minute rush.
All of these factors should assist you in meeting the crazy assignment deadlines in college.
