When I started university in 2019, the workload started off quite slow but then it soon caught up with me, which I found to be the same at the beginning of each semester. I'd describe it as a snowball, as I only had a bit to begin with but then the amount of work got heavier.
It's very easy to get lost in the panic of deadlines but it's important to remain calm.
First of all, don't leave it to the last minute! There were times when I was up until the early hours of the morning trying to finish the assignment, and sometimes this can't be helped for many different reasons but trust me when I say the earlier you start the less stressed you will be.
Start by writing out your deadlines for that semester and then go through the assignment guide to write out the key points of what you are being asked to do. This way you can see, what needs to be done first and which one requires the most in terms of the word count for example. But try your best to give each assignment 100%.
