1st-semester students are yet to have a glimpse of backlogs because it is something which is unusual in pre-university courses and SSLC. Gone are the days when you fail in one subject you have to write it in either supplementary or next year. In case of engineering, you can fail in as many subjects as you wish in odd semesters (Not in even semester!) And you can write it in next semester also.
JNTU Students might be wondering how to stay away from backlogs. In this article, we are going to discuss the tips on how to clear backlogs in JNTU
Tips on How to Clear Backlogs in JNTU
Developing a Plan of Action
- Gather all of your syllabus and assignment sheets. Then, get a piece of paper (or more, if needed) and draw a line down the middle. On the left side, place the dates of any exams and the due dates for all assignments. Try to merge all of this information into one list that goes chronologically from the near due dates to those further out.
- Post this list somewhere visible so that you can keep track of due dates and also mark off assignments as they are completed.
- If you are under a lot of stress, it may be helpful to create a general “to-do” list at the same time. Write down items such as previewing JNTU previous question papers, taking notes etc. This list will not take priority, but it can ease your mind to write down everything at once.
Schedule Your Study Based on Priority
- You will want to take into account the due date, the difficulty level of the task, the grade’s weight in your final average, and your individual confidence level in each area.
- To assess difficulty, you may want to look at your other scores for similar material. For example, if you received a 65 on the last quiz, you may need to spend some more time in that area. This may take priority over studying for a class where you are holding a consistent “A” average.
- Also, if you know that your notes are weaker in a certain class, you may want to move it up on your list as it may take more time to catch-up and make any note fixes.
- Be careful of listing all of one course’s assignments together in the priority order as you may get burnt out just working on one subject over and over again. Instead, look for opportunities to integrate different projects into your list while still making progress.
Create a Study Schedule
- Try not to overschedule yourself. Make sure to keep your study sessions between 30 minutes to two hours long. Add in short breaks in between sessions. Keep the sessions shorter for more difficult material.
- Think about what you do during the day and look for ways to free up additional time. For example, if you normally go home in between classes, try staying on campus and going to the library instead.
- Realize that with your schedule in place you may have to say “no” to taking on additional responsibilities. Put your study needs first whenever possible
