    I get my coursework done but it's usually late at night the week or day before it's due and I really need to get out of this habit as soon as possible!
    I'm aiming for a B (two of my university offers are asking for this and I don't really want to settle girl a C like I did let year as I know I can do better) which means I have to do more work than I did last year which means by leaving it to the last minute I'm really not giving myself enough time.
    I've tried making plans of certain days and times to do it, that thong where you do an hour work - set time break ect. But it doesn't work and I don't feel like I 'have' to do it until the deadline date is close or if I do start it then I'll usually do it really slowly which is hardly any better.. D:
    I don't know what I'm supposed to so but I need to figure it out soon as I finish in may!

    Have you tried the pomodoro technique?
    You set a timer for 25 minutes and get rid of absolutely every distraction (it's only 25 minutes, you can cope without), and work solidly. You then have a 5 minute break and go again, repeating this 4 times and then having a 20 minute break it's a really good way to stay productive
