How to catch up if you fall behind in class.

Are you falling behind with the coursework and behind in class? Don’t worry; you are not alone. Sometimes things happen, and it can cause you to fall behind in your work. Not to worry, let’s talk about some ways to help you catch up.

Important note before we start.

Let’s get started

Firstly, if you have fallen behind due to absence, be sure to contact your teacher/s and ask them what you have missed out on. They may be able to tell you which tasks are a priority. You could also ask your classmates for assistance on what they did in class while you were away. If you have been absent for a long period of time, it is a good idea to get a 1-on-1 tutor who is well versed in the curriculum for your year level and subjects. Having a personal tutor can really speed up the catch-up time, as a good tutor will know exactly what you need to do to catch up. As a bonus, our tutors can help you with any questions you have as you work through your work and actually teach you any content you don’t understand.

Prioritise your most important tasts first.

Once you know what tasks you have on your to-do list, it may be time to prioritise. Then create an action plan on how you are going to tackle your catch up. For example, maybe there is an assignment due first that you need to complete. Or perhaps there is a test coming up, so you need to prioritise the chapter relating to that test. It is completely fine to prioritise the work you have fallen behind on, doing the most important components first. This will allow you to set goals for yourself to get the tasks done.

When you are behind in classwork, it can be important to find a nice quiet, distraction-free zone to study in. Having a dedicated study space can encourage you to catch up with less stress. Whether it be a library or your bedroom, sit down in a peaceful area, turn off your phone and any other distractions, and get into the zone.

Lastly, try not to stress. I know it can be hard, but your health comes first. Even when doing intense catch-up study, it is still important to take breaks, get enough sleep, eat and drink. If you are really struggling, reach out to your teachers or tutors for assistance and support. There is nothing wrong with asking for help.
