How to stay on top of your end of term work

Whilst some degree options do not get a reading week, English Literature students are the fortunate recipients of a week without lectures and seminars.

The idea is that you use reading week to catch up on anything you haven’t done, and to prepare for the rest of term.

In my experience, the portion of term that follows reading week can often be the most difficult, with mounting deadlines, growing reading lists, and the sense of ‘time running out’.

Here are some ways in which you can manage your workload and continue to enjoy the end of Term 1!

Use reading week to make lists

Write down everything you need to do in the coming weeks.

Week 7-10 will feel much shorter than you perhaps anticipate, so knowing the ways in which you will use your time will be extremely useful.

Write down the texts you need to read and buy, and make a list of any impending deadlines, as some modules may need work due in your first term.

Try to manage your workload and your free time

Moving towards Christmas at Uni will take up a lot of your time!

It is likely that your social life will start to infringe on your workload.

Make sure that you are finding a way to get your work done and to enjoy your free time, because no one wants to miss out on account of unfinished deadlines.

Use your time strategically

If you began your degree this year, it is likely that you are much more confident with the style of reading required at university now.

This half of term is where this comes into play; juggling deadlines with the same volume of reading can be difficult, so think wisely about what and how you are reading.
