Hi,

I just wanted some friendly advice on if it was possible to complete four assignments in a day (I actually have 3.5 days) but I wanted to get it done in a day to take the stress off. Long story short I am in this position because I had issues with bereavement as my mother passed away few months ago and its been difficult to complete my remaining assignments for semester 2.

My course is Bsc environmental management. and I am in first year.

As I am writing this I am working on my assignments. So what do you guys think?

Hey, first off, sorry for your loss, I hope your mother is at peace :suith:

What kind of assignments do you need to complete? Essays? Journal reviews? Coursework?

It'll definitely be a challenge to complete all 4 within a day, but it might help to finish the longest/hardest ones first, which would make you more relaxed knowing the difficult one(s) are out of the way.

You could also try focusing more time on assignments you know you may get a higher grade on - this is what helped me get through my first year as a Geography student.

Ultimately, as you do have just over 3 days to do them, you could spend these days reviewing your work ie proofreading, writing bibliographies etc

Hope this helps!

The assignments I have is an essay 2000 wrd is almost complete as this is the easiest to complete. A field report 2000 wrd which I have about a third done, information sheet 1500 wrd which is half done and data analysis essay 1000 wrd which is half done.

Yh my thinking was the same too get the easier ones done first and then crackdown on the tougher ones. I just needed a little boost of reassurance thanks for that! 👍

I'm guessing it's too late to apply for an extension or claim mitigating circumstances due to your bereavement? You might want to contact someone about that before rushing through the assignments in one day.

If you can't get an extension etc., then to me it makes sense to dedicate 1 day to each assignment (and maybe do the shortest or most straightforward assignment on the 0.5 day). It seems counter-intuitive to rush them when you have days free in which to complete them.

I would talk to your department about your situation - it may be possible that you may be able to get an extension as PhoenixFortune says or your lecturers may take this into account when marking. Hopefully, you are getting the time to grieve and the help to support you in your current situation. With regards to your situation, I would recommend spreading your assignments out in the time you have left. I don't know how far you have progressed (i.e. have you done the research, essay plan or first draft) but to complete all 4 in one day risks the quality of your assignments and might just be too much for you to do all at once (you need breaks!)
