Lifestyle | Staying Organised With School Work

(image is taken off google images, it's not my own!)
Get folders for each subject. If you want to keep all your work for each subject organised, then a folder would an ideal solution. It ensures that everything is neat and in the right place, so you won't have any loose papers and you will always know where everything is when you need it.
Get supplies you may need. Even if you think that you may not need a protractor for that specific exam, or you don't need to bring in all your notes for that one English lesson, just do it anyway. You can never be too prepared and if you didn't have something when you needed it the most, you could end up getting in trouble, or failing all because of that one piece of equipment.
Always be prepared. This leads on from my previous point, but you have to be prepared. Organise your school bag the night before, get rid of papers that you no longer need, keep a tidy space to study in and always revise for everything until you are 100% confident that you know what you are doing. It's better to know a lot about a couple of subjects than to only know a little bit about one.
Focus and stick to deadlines. When you focus and keep on track with dates and deadlines, then everything will become much easier. Focus in class and get down all the notes that you may need and ask questions if you are even a tiny bit unsure on something so that clears things up. Write down all your deadlines in a planner or a diary and keep a timetable so you can organise all of your time properly and you don't miss any important exam dates, or cram revision in at the last minute. Don't allow yourself to get distracted and always try and revise in a quiet space, so you can properly work.
Do homework as soon as you get it. It can be so easy to procrastinate and put things off all the time if you don't want to do them, but it's best to get everything done when you receive it. Just get it out of the way on the night that you get it and then you won't have to worry about it anymore.
Keep everything tidy. Make sure that everything is always neat and in it's place. Keep your papers in folders and in the right order, get rid of all the loose sheets that you don't need any more, keep all your books and stationary in an organised place, or in a pencil case and always make sure that you have everything you need where it should be.
