How Do You Start An Assignment?


Doing an assignment is a process, believe it or not. Planning, time management and drafting will set you up for success. Approaching assignments like a project can help you get your head around it.  


Use these tips to break through assignment anxiety, and get it done. 

Assignments can seem daunting, but they don’t have to be. With a strategic and organized approach, you can have a well-written assignment in no time at all. 

  • Plan ahead. Plan out your time carefully in advance, so that you aren’t forced to spend sleepless nights battling the clock. If you start working on your assignment right away and don't wait until the last minute, then you will avoid a lot of stress and reduce the chance of failing.
  • Get organised. Collect relevant studies or research on your topic and organise them into files, according to each assignment section or question.
  • Start writing. Write up one section of your assignment at a time—this will make it feel less overwhelming!

If you get stuck on an assignment, a good strategy can be to write down all the things you do know about the question and then think of how you can use that information or where you could look for more information.

Assignments done well can help you learn your course material, so instead of dreading them, see them as opportunity. Start by doing some preliminary reading and research, then get organised by making yourself a schedule to work with. See each assignment as a stepping stone in the right direction.
