Procrastination delays or avoids doing what you have to do. Naturally, sometimes put off. However, excessive procrastination can lead to feelings of guilt for not completing a task when it should be done. This can also be troubling, as the task still needs to be completed. In addition, excessive delay can lead to poor performance if you try to complete a task with a short remaining time. In short, excessive procrastination can hinder your school and personal success.
Here are the 20 things you can do to help you to control procrastination:
?Reward yourself when you complete a task on time. You can surf the Internet, have some ice cream, or do anything else that is a positive reinforcer for you.
?Prioritize the tasks you have to do. Putting tasks in priority order will avoid the problem of trying to decide where to begin.
?Work on tasks at the times you work best. Some students can get things going in the morning, while other students may be more comfortable working in the evening.
?Don’t try to finish everything at once. Break tasks into smaller, more manageable parts.
?Work with a study group. The momentum of the other group members will carry you with them.
?Carefully schedule what you have to do. Stick to your schedule.
?Establish reasonable standards for completing a task. Striving for perfection can stop you from completing the task.
?Set specific goals and track your progress toward their accomplishment. This will help you avoid the feeling that the work before you is endless.
?Establish a comfortable place in which to do your work. You will be more inclined to do your work if your work-space is peaceful and inviting.
?Work for short periods of time. Set a timer for 15 minutes and take a short break when it goes off.
?Create a “to do” list at the start of each day. Keep the list to a reasonable length. Cross off each thing to do as you accomplish it.
?Don’t sit around thinking about what you have to do. Stop thinking and start doing.
?If there is a particular task that you dread doing, force yourself to face it. Once you complete this task, your other tasks will seem like “a walk in the park.”
?Think about all of the benefits of completing a task. Use these thoughts as motivators.
?Use visual reminders of what you have to do. Post-it notes placed in prominent places (e.g., refrigerator door, computer screen, and mirror) will remind you that something needs to be done.
?Organize your work-space. Spending a lot of time “looking” for what you need to do a task is a classic form of procrastination.
?Use peer pressure. This works for Weight Watchers and can work for you. Identify a friend to whom you are accountable for getting your work done.
?Focus on starting a task rather than finishing it. Bring your focus from the future to the right now.
?Don’t make too much of a task. Overvaluing a task can make you highly anxious. Anxiety can block your performance.
?Identify the ways in which you procrastinate. Take direct steps to eliminate these.
Benjamin Franklin once said, “You may delay, but time will not.”

National Certificate of Educational Achievement (NCEA) is the core qualification for senior secondary school students, and it is available at Levels 1, 2 and 3 on the New Zealand Qualifications Framework (NZQF). Learning from both the New Zealand Curriculum and Te Marautanga o Aotearoa (the Māori-medium curriculum) contributes to NCEA and the University Entrance award. NCEA is for everyone, whether you want to do an apprenticeship, go to university, or be ready to get a job when you leave school.
NCEA information is now at your fingertips NZQA has a mobile App called NCEA Guide written for parents, whānau and employers.
The App provides quick and easy access to key information about NCEA. Content can be viewed in English and Te Reo Māori.
The App makes practical information about NCEA more easily accessible and enables parents and whānau to access simple content about how NCEA works and how they can support family members studying for NCEA.
The New Zealand Qualifications Authority (NZQA) is the government unit responsible for managing the New Zealand Qualifications framework, administering NCEA, assuring the quality of non-university education providers and responsible for qualifications recognition and standard-setting for some unit standards.
There are three levels of NCEA levels 1, 2 and 3. For Level 1, it will provide you with a solid foundation of skills and knowledge that you can build on. However, level 2 is the minimum qualification you will need for some jobs and tertiary programmes. Level 3, along with the University Entrance (UE) award is what
you will need to enter most university and tertiary programmes.
Most Year 11 students start at Level 1 of NCEA, and progress to Level 2 in Year 12 and Level 3 in Year 13. It’s common to study at a mix of different levels, depending on your learning programme. For example, Year 12 students may do most of their courses at Level 2, but start a new course at Level 1 or study another course at Level 3 because they are good at it. You can start working towards NCEA Level 2 before you gain NCEA Level 1.
To achieve NCEA level 1, you will need 60 credits at Level 1 or above, 10 literacy credits, and 10 numeracy credits. For NCEA level 2, you will need 60 credits at Level 2 or above, 20 credits at any level, and the Level 1 literacy and numeracy requirements must also be met. NCEA level 3, you will need 60 credits at Level 3 or above, and 20 credits at Level 2 or above, and the Level 1 literacy and numeracy requirements must also be met.
The question is, how to gain these credits? You can gain these credits by being assessed against standards. Standards assess different areas of knowledge and skills within each subject. A standard might require you to analyse a text, give a speech, or develop a business case. Included among the standards available are also specific standards that recognise Mātauranga Māori (Māori knowledge). Schools decide
what courses to provide, and which standards to make available in those courses. You can gain credits by showing that you know something or can do something. For example, the Level 1 standard ‘Apply algebraic procedures in solving problems’ will give you 4 credits when you are assessed against that standard and can show you have learned that skill. You can also gain credits from some activities away from the classroom. For example, getting your driver licence, completing work or study programmes, and studying through a trades academy can all help you gain credits.
For literacy and numeracy credits, you will need a minimum of 10 literacy credits (reading, writing, speaking and listening skills) and 10 numeracy credits (number, measurement, statistics, or other mathematical skills) to achieve each level of NCEA. You only need to gain these credits once. This means that once you have gained the credits, you have already met the literacy and numeracy requirements for NCEA Levels 1, 2 and 3. There are many standards that will allow you to demonstrate your literacy and numeracy skills. These can be completed in a range of different courses and can be achievement standards or a specified group of unit standards (achievement and unit standards are explained here). If you’re unsure which standards you can take to gain your literacy and numeracy credits, talk to your school.
