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 11 2013: Hmm, well, my degree is from Stanford, very fine school, but in literature.

    Just out of curiosity, how did you decide you wanted to be a doctor? I take it in high school you took the typical courses someone might take who likes medicine, like physics, biology, math? And you did very well in them?

    Why do you want to be a doctor, what are the rewards for you? Helping people? Money?

    Is there some particular aspect of medicine that interests you most, that you would like to specialize in?

    Did you have a lot of friends in the past? What did you share, what brought you together?
