What are your best time management tips?

As student, I am struggling with time management. The thing is that, although I plan my day, I cannot fullfill my planned work. During the day, I am being stressed, walking as all negative. Important thing to mention is that, my university's educational system is that, we have very often too many exams. In last exam, I got low score and after a month I am going to have subject exams again. I am worrying too much and cannot live normal/pieceful life. When I was at high school, I enjoyed/loved learning. But now, I lost this trait. What can you advice TED community, how can I regain my this trait? I am feeling and realizing that I am not studying for myself, it's just may be for passing exams. I know I was not this kind of person, and I'd love to know any of your advices.

Thank you

    Feb 10 2013: sh 12, can you please tell us what you are studying, from what angle, with what purpose? As you've presented your problem now, it's very abstract, very generalized.

      Feb 11 2013: I am pre-med program student. I want to be doctor in the future. I studied my subjects at high school in different language but I applied university where education is provided in english. I, personally myself cannot understand what's really my problem. Next thing is also may be connected with my social life. I am the only girl from my city in this university and here, people are from different nationality. I am not really enjoying my life or studies. I am not being able to make best, close friends. Here, it is kind of nobody cares about each other, competition, being best, I do not know, I am tired of it. And, all combined, it gives me pressure and stress.

        Feb 11 2013: Remember that to have a friend, you have to be a friend.

        If you are a close observer, you will find that little by little you will notice individuals you may befriend.

        You can have friends in different places for different reasons.

        Finding a best friend, someone to tell your problems to and to spend time with, might be a bit of a challenge.

        See if you can use the diversity among the students around you. Ask questions about their hometown, and listen attentively at their replies........taking a personal interest in others may have a wonderful outcome.

        Of course, I am not familiar with your culture or what is seen as proper or improper.

        So take what you can from my advice, and discard the rest.

        In the meantime, continue to enjoy our TED community to post questions and contribute to our convesations.

        Have a great week!!!
