Make active choices. Accept that you may have to compromise in your study and, if necessary, cover only the essentials. This keeps you in control, even if your marks are not as good as they could be with more time.
Talk to your family and friends. Perhaps they can help with child care, walking the dog - or to read your drafts and listen to your ideas.
Talk to your tutor or Student Support Team early if you fall behind. It may be possible to cover only the essentials in the module - but seek advice early.
