The stress of deadlines is showing in the students’ faces. Second years have a deadline looming and they’re feeling pressured and on top of that they have their deadlines for the newspaper too.
It’s tough, but it’s also life and the way of dealing with it is to be organised and be a good time manager.
Deadlines for assessments are known about from week one, so it’s important to produce a schedule with deadline dates highlighted. It’s also good to set yourself some interim deadlines.
Students being students, will, however always leave it last minute and that’s when problems occur. Printers break down, ink and paper disappear. Nerves get frayed and tempers flare!!
