Any ideas? I'm struggling to just get school work and homework done? Also how's everyone's dealing with choosing universities and stuff especially without end of year exams.

Learn to plan effectively!
List the modules and module topics, then weight than 1-5. Weighting by either on how well you know the subject or how long it will take to know the subject are both effective.

Work out a plan that will allow you to complete the most important parts unique to you within the given time that suits you.

You could even learn how to make GANTT charts.

Very useful to pick up good planning skills early. You can get poor marks in university by not being able effectively scope your work or if you’re not efficient.

Whatever time you put into planning should save you double the time revising effectively.

Hope this helps

Yeah thank you very much, very helpful. What's a GANTT chart?

It’s a chart that allows you to map a series of tasks against months/years/hours.
Microsoft project is a good tool for this, or you can do it free hand.
I use it to manage a lot of different projects/tasks.
