That is not true, but there are some methods for increasing one's efficiency though. There are a couple of simple rules for you to follow to save your nerves and become more productive.
- Start working on your assignment as early as possible. Don't leave everything till the last minute. If your paper is written over 1 night you can't expect any satisfying results of it. Therefore, don't search for excuses for postponing to write your paper and get to work.
- Stop procrastinating. There must have been hundreds of times when you turned your laptop on to start working on your assignment and ended up surfing the web or chatting with your friends via a social network. That has to stop. There are a lot of applications you can download online that will block all the distractions you may face and help you concentrate on your task.
- Write introductions and conclusions after you've finished writing the body paragraphs. Staring at a blank page for hours is not very productive, is it? Instead of waiting for an inspiration to come and trying to come up with a brilliant way to start your paper with, start working on its main part. You'll see it will be much easier to write an introduction after you've explored the topic from a to z.
- Make a schedule and stick to it. The best way to organize your studying process is to plan everything ahead. You'll probably know the due dates of your assignments ahead, so think about the way you can cope with them and identify the approximate amount of time you can spend on each of them.
- Prioritize your assignments. It's very easy to give in to the temptation of starting to work on something you enjoy rather than on something you have to. If there's a boring and difficult assignment with a pressing deadline and the one you're excited about but is not due another week or even more, choose the first one to be your priority.
