All nighter? Meticulous planner? How did/do you approach assignments? watch

    • Thread Starter

    How do you approach university assignments. Do you do it the night before and still manage to get over 60? Do you plan ahead weeks ahead, do you do drafts, plans etc etc.

    I'm a bit of both. Generally, I plan weeks in advance, re-draft, re-draft, re-draft time and time again before finishing and then still tweak it right up until hand in. However sometimes I just really can't be bothered (like now) and just make a rough plan (4 weeks ago) for an essay due in roughly 40 hours. Looks like it's going to be an all nighter tonight to get it out the way so I can at least put finishing touches on it tomorrow.
