ASSIGNMENT ONE

Formal Report on Time Management

Terms of Reference

As part of my Study Skills portfolio, Julie Khamis has asked me to construct a weekly time table which is to include between twelve and sixteen hours of study time. It must show a balance of interests and achievable short term study goals to career towards the long term objective of academic success in the Access course.

Procedure

I started by constructing two time audits in the form; weekday and weekend. Then divided the half hour time slots between the categories "Fixed time", "Moveable", "Leisure", as my week worked before the start of the Access course. Next I calculated the hours spent and converted it into percentage of time spent, using the formula 1/2 hrs /48 x 100. When I completed the audits I was able to put the information into timetables, this time adding the category "Study time" and using the formula No hrs/ 168 hrs in a week x 100 to convert into percentage.

Findings

Weekday Audits

* Fixed Time = 15.5 hrs = 64%

* Moveable = 4.5 hrs = 19%

* Leisure = 4 hrs
