After this step take a rough sheet of paper and draw different columns of time, subject, topic etc. Then write the subject and topic you want to study at a certain time. A timetable will encourage you to study more and complete your tasks in an orderly manner by allocating a certain time for a certain task through out the day.
Limit The Use Of Social Media:
Social media might be good in a lot of ways but certainly it is one of the main reason why students today have poor time management skills. Students waste a lot of time surfing the internet, texting their friends, uploading photos and watching videos. Some of them even play games all day which can affect their brain adversely. In 2013 a report came which said that 93 percent of students spend hours on social media rather than studying.

train, during the journey you can easily read physics notes or read a really good book that you weren’t getting time to read.
Record Your Time:

For e.g. count the number of hours you spend on studying, playing, watching TV, using social media, hanging out with friends and exercising. If you find that you are watching TV more than you are studying, allocate this time to the studies. This will allow you to gain control over time.
