After reading the section about planning tasks around your time in Jordan’s last post, I instantly thought of one of the best personal time-management/study organizers/productivity tools that I have ever used. I thought I’d share how I organize my study time, and that is with Gradefix.
Students, what is the easiest way to pull your mark up half a letter grade?
Do your homework? Well, you should be doing that already. But the answer is Gradefix!
Gradefix is an innovative yet simple solution for the age-old problem of study time management. Its a waste of time to spend time planning what work you should do when, and planning for nights you will be out, etc. It is easy to accidentally miss an assignment this way.
Gradefix is a web application designed for students, by students. When you sign up, you enter your courses, as well as the number of hours you can study each night. Then, when you get assigned homework, you can input it into your Gradefix account, and it will automatically schedule your study time for you. If you have 1 hour on Monday, it will tell you what needs to be done the most! Gradefix is especially useful for getting rid of work “spikes”. After mid-term exams, or a bunch of large tests, students usually get a small break before more work. Unfortunately, when you are suddenly hit with more work, it is often hard to juggle the huge levels of studying you must do. By inputting all your work for the coming semester, gradefix will schedule your time so you never have a sudden spike in work. You’ll never have to study through the night again!

You can sign-up for a free account. The only limit is that you can only have 10 active tasks at a time. If you use more than that, or would like to plan an entire semester, try using the pro account, which costs only $5/month.
At that price, its probably the most effective, AND cheapest thing you have done for your academics lately. Aren’t better grades worth $5?
