Study skills: Procrastination, perfectionism and prioritisation (exam-focused)

Venue: Online

Book your place

Procrastination and perfectionism are the two key enemies of effective and efficient exam revision. Prioritisation is one of the best friends of succeeding in your exams. This session will help you to reflect on the causes of your procrastination and perfectionism and provide suggestions on how to manage them (especially when revising and sitting take-home exams). The other focus of this session is to identify the importance of prioritisation for your academic studies (and other areas of your life), and to provide a basic framework to help you develop your prioritisation skills.

Please note this workshop is for enrolled Birkbeck students only, and you will require your student login details to access the workshop.
