When you're overwhelmed the best response is to break the problem down into smaller chunks.

Allocate time for each, but also for breaks and relaxation. Get some help for the one you are struggling with. Don’t feel like everything needs to be perfect. It’s common to feel this way and part of the uni experience is about developing time management and resilience skills.

If they’ve already been set now, and you have until January, you can just divide up your time between now and then. Don’t think “I have 5 assignments due on 10th Jan!” or whatever, just act as though they have different deadlines. So get one done this week, one next week, etc.

This. OP, when I had 3 essays due in within days of each other, I divided up my time (i.e. the month prior) so I spent 2 days on essay 1, then 2 days on essay 2, etc. until either they were done or needed more work.

To prioritise your work think about:
~ Which essay requires the most research/preparation
~ Which essay is due in first
~ Which essay you feel the most confident about

Hi, take today off you need it haha. Don't worry you have lots of time, I recently had 3 assignments in within the same week, I know how you feel. My advice is to start them now, do a bit of each every day. Try using a planner and split up the word count by how many weeks you have left to do them, try to hit each word count by the end of the week (This works well for me). I'm not sure if this makes sense so here is an example if your coursework is 1000 words and you have 4 weeks that's 250 words a week or 36 words a day, good luck!!

Hope they're not 3000 words like mine and have 3 due on different days in Jan. I start with earliest first but look at the descriptors and aim for 50%, do this for all then if time allows and this depends on your organisation and endurance, revisit and add or chsnge to earn more marks, i would recommend a 1-2-1 tutorial to check progress with tutor. Good luck, dont waste energy asking anymore as there has been some great advice given now start doing.
