I need to study all these new topics and running behind, please help watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hi all,
    So, after suffering from pretty serious medical issues last year (only some of them have gotten better now), I've decided to stop studying literature/languages and start studying something completely new.
    It's called a "2-year technical diploma" in my country.

    I have to study secretarial skills, law, economics, management, basic accounting, several software (office pack suite, accounting/ SQL software), plus a smidge of other "technical" subjects.

    I chose distance learning (I had no other option, really).

    Now, I started studying really late into the year, and I have basically 3 months left before my internship and I'm completely terrified by all these new topics.

    I got told AFTER registering for the classes that it'd be hard for me since I don't know anything about technical subjects, as all I've studied in my life is literature or languages.

    Do you have any advice?
    I can be hard-working when I want to, but it's mainly the fact that most things in the books I don't understand. If I do tons of research it helps but I'm running out of time.
