As a student, it seems as if there is not enough time in the day to do everything you want to do. There are so many things you have to do.
Classes to attend, homework to complete, extracurricular activities to take part in, social activities with your friends, your chores at home and it seems like the list goes on and on. You might even have an after school job.
Whoa, that definitely makes it seem like you have no time at all.
You can make your life as a student easier by learning some time management techniques.
The first thing you must learn is to include to do lists are part of your daily life. In your to do list write down everything that you have to do. Write it down as soon as you think of it, else you’ll forget it.
The next thing you must learn is to complete one thing on your to do list before you move to the next. Finish one item, cross it off your list and then do the next one.
A sample list could look something like: 
Do homework for geometry class or ask for helping with homework from someone smart
Clean up room 
Text Amy to get Cds back 
Take the garbage out 
Study for physics exam 
Read first chapter for history class
And so on.
Make sure you list everything down. This way you will know exactly everything you have to do that day.
As far as studying goes, try to review each day’s lesson on the same evening. Reviewing something you just learnt, will enable you to remember it easily. Try not to cram everything into a session the day prior to an exam. As you review lessons, take notes on index cards or in a notebook. You can then use these the day prior to an exam. It will help you study faster and reduce stress. And you will do better on your exams.
Remember not to let your social activities with your friends get in the way of your school work or other important things you must do. Do not allow phone calls and text messages from your friends distract you. If you are in the middle of something important let your friends leave a message. You can call them back later.
Doing these simple things will allow you to be the best student you can be.
