It might be summer but a lot of us organisation and planning freaks are already getting sorted ready for back to school season! A Bullet Journal can help you get organised in pretty much all parts of your life including your studies and education. In this post I’ll show you some quick no fuss ideas for getting your Bullet Journal back to school ready.
Its always useful to have an overview of your year in your journal. That means that even if you haven’t had time to create a spread for something you will have a place you can jot down the date. I think it also helps you to stay on track and make sure that you’re not falling behind. You can see at a glance when deadlines and exams are coming up so they hopefully won’t take you by surprise! We all know how fast time seems to pass when you have stuff to do.
Creating a timetable is a great method for being able to visualise your schedule and see where you can fit other tasks and activities into your day. Depending on whether your classes change each term you may need to create additional ones throughout the year. But an at-a-glance timetable is a great way to help you organise your week. You can see where you have space in your day and it will help you to create your study routine. You can even colour code the different classes to make it extra visually appealing.
Master To Do List
A master to do list or a ‘brain dump’ is a great page to include for absolutely anything that needs doing. It’s the place where any and every to do can be dumped. Its one of my favourite ways to start getting organised. Once everything is written down somewhere I can break it up into smaller chunks on different spreads.
A study tracker is a little like having a habit tracker. If you have to work through a specific topic you can create a tool like this to help keep you accountable. Some people also time themselves with apps like ATracker to record how many hours a day they are studying. With that information you can create a graph or a tracker to show yourself how much work you’re doing and keep yourself accountable and on track for success!
Of course results are important so you might also want to include a grade or a results tracker. It can be a simple table with the names of the exams/coursework/test and then your scores. If you need some extra motivation you can also create a plan of action page that helps you to take positive steps to improve your results.
