Setting Priorities

Most university students find themselves facing tight deadlines and may find they need more time for an assignment than they originally set aside in their schedule. Ideally, if this happens to you, you will have enough flexibility in your schedule to add more assignment writing times. If that is not feasible, you need to set some priorities:
  • review the demands of the assignment
  • consider where you are in the writing process and how much time you have left
  • determine the most important assignment tasks you have left to do and give them priority in your schedule

Setting and resetting priorities helps you allot your time to ensure that the most important aspects of the task receive sufficient attention.
