Homework Tips


Everyone knows homework is the worst. But we do have to do it. Use these tips to make homework shorter and more enjoyable (Yes! Homework can be fun!).

Don’t leave it to the last minute! -Try to get homework done a few days after you’ve been given it. You’ll have more free time later and your future self will thank you for it!

Do revision and drafts -This allows you to familiarise yourself with topics and be more engaged in lessons, as well as making your quality of homework better.

Make a Study Group! -Meet up with some of your less-distracting friends and do some studying, revision and homework together. Just try to get some work done instead of just messing around….

Keep snacks next to you – If you feel hungry, you will get up in search of food and return unmotivated. Fix this problem by keeping healthy snacks and a large drink within arms reach.

Get a planner -If your school doesn’t already give you one, get a planner, and USE IT! Write down all homework and due dates as well as times for revision and when you’re going to do the homework.

Make a revision timetable -Organise your revision so you don’t devote a whole day to one subject or to nothing at all!

Take breaks! -Don’t burn yourself out or just stare at a blank piece of paper for hours. Take short 5 minute breaks or long 15 minute breaks. But whatever you do, don’t feel guilty about it!


Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go do my homework!
