If you don’t manage time, it will eventually manage you. If you don’t have a time management plan in place you will end up running out of time.
It is not enough to say I am going to put some time aside for study this week. You have to plan for it. Otherwise it will never happen.
A few years ago I decided I was going to read 100 books in a year. If I thought to myself, yes, I must do some reading some time I would never achieved my goal. What I did was work out how many books I would need to read a week. Then I worked out how much time I would need to read that many books (it was 1.92 books per week by the way). Then I would divide that by the number of days in the week. Finally, I added that amount of time to my calendar where I would read every day.
That is what I mean by developing a time management plan. You need to be very specific about what you need to accomplish every week and every day. Set aside time each day to study and work on your assessment tasks. Make it a non-negotiable part of your schedule. That way you can not only tick off your weekly tasks but achieve your yearly goals too.
