Introduction

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. ...read more.

On theses days I only have college in the mornings so my time is free to study as well as having an hour of leisure in the evening; which on balance is a healthy and sustainable amount of variety to continue with for the long term. Mondays have the most variety with all four categories included in the day. The time is nicely spread out with enough leisure time and moveable time to give me the freedom to feel refreshed enough to study in the evening. From analyzing the whole completed timetable, I feel I have a well rounded, sustainable study plan. All categories are shown in a good, healthy amount for each. All the important time management issues like study and fixed times take priority while also allowing more sociable times to still take place. It's the contribution of all four categories that lead to overall success in the Access course. ...read more.

Conclusion

This does not mean to say that their overall objective may be compromised. Evaluating all my work so far I feel it would be impossible to maintain a long term study routine without the balance of all four categories. In the short term it may be possible (exam week) but for long term success and perseverance it is healthy to have a balance of interests or you will end up stressed and fatigued. Things like 30 minute study sessions are good in between other activities to refresh in your mind the lesson or tidy up notes, without stressing yourself out at committing 2/3 hours to study periods. Committing too long in any study will only slow your enthusiasm and you will end up not being able to concentrate. This is a waste of the time because you achieve very little. Sensible study is the key, make use of time management. Little and often seems to work best. ?? ?? ?? ?? September 15, 2011 [KHADIJAH ABDI (1101046)] GROUP 7 ...read more.
