This informative blog post will discuss how not to get stressed due to your homework and ace it. We will give you lifesaving tips on how to finish homework faster and in an efficient manner.

You get stressed due to the homework given to you at times. The purpose of the homework is to help you learn, but if you are stressed, there is something wrong.

1. Change your attitude towards your homework

Although this tip might not look very useful at first, in our experience, changing your attitude towards your homework goes a long way towards acing it.

So how does a change in attitude help? If you consider the homework given to you as a burden, you will always struggle with it, and you will not be able to finish it faster and efficiently.

Your school and college teachers give you homework to better practice the material they teach. As the saying goes, “Practice makes a man perfect,” so if you want to become perfect, you need to do a lot of questions (in the form of homework). 

Once you understand the reason and change your attitude, you will positively take things. There will be lesser resistance from your side to do your homework, and since you are doing it with the right spirit, you will more likely ace it.

2. Work on your knowledge a little more

The very reason you cannot solve a homework problem is that your knowledge is lacking somewhat. So before you try solving the problem again, it is better to work on your knowledge.

  • Read the topic from your book related to the problem you are stuck with. There might be a different perspective of that same theory that might not have come to your mind the first time you read the book. In our experience, reading the book the second or third time will give you different insights which you missed the first time you read the book.
  • Check related problems in the book: Checking the solutions to similar questions in your book can give you several hints. You can use these hints to solve your homework problem from a fresher perspective.
  • Search for video explanations on YouTube: You can find a wealth of information on sites like KhanAcademy. There are several similar channels on YouTube where you can get helpful videos. 
  • Check lecture notes or formula sheet: Many times, just looking at the formula sheet gives you a glimpse of different tools you have got, and you may try solving the problem using one of the formulas shown. Checking class notes may also provide hints that you might have missed the first time you read that.

3. Do not be shy to ask for help

It would be best to do the homework yourself; we get it. But what if you have already spent an hour solving a problem and are still unable to do it? Is it wise to spend more time on that? 

NO. There comes a time when you should ask for help, as banging your head on the wall does not help. 

4. So, where to get homework help?

4.1. Check with your classmates:

Check especially your close friends. If you are struggling with your homework, the chances are high that they are also struggling, and one of them might have solved it by now. They will give you some hints.

4.2. Search online:

Copy-paste or type the same question on google, and very likely, you will get the same question on the internet. You will often get a hint there, if not the complete solution. If you don’t find anything online for free, you can consider paying for the solutions on sites like Chegg, Coursehero, etc. By paying a small amount, you can access solutions to many problems.

4.3. Ask in online forums:

There are many online forums. is the leading forum for any discussion on Physics. There is a dedicated section on homework help as well. Likewise, you may find high-quality forums on other subjects as well.

4.4. Check your college discussion board:

Many teachers make it mandatory to participate on the college discussion board. You can ask your questions there. One of your classmates can answer your questions there. 

4.5. Ask your teacher:

Your school or college teachers/professors are not that reachable for each question, but you can occasionally ask some questions from them. 

4.6. Get a private or online tutor:

If you don’t get help in the aforementioned places, hire a tutor online or offline. It is a very costly option compared to previous ones, but it is a sure-shot way to finish your homework faster and save tonnes of your time. You can get help from us, but check this link if you want more options.

5. Do not procrastinate & start earlier

If you start earlier with enough time in hand, you will not panic. As a result, you will focus better on solving your homework, and better focus usually results in better grades.

6. Do some planning in advance

Before you start doing your homework, decide in advance and estimate how much time is needed to finish it. You can also write it somewhere so that you won’t forget. Updating it on a note-taking app or writing it on a to-do list will ensure that you are on top of your schedule.

7. Avoid distractions

7.1. It would be best if you had a calm place to study peacefully

If there are a lot of distractions, you will not be able to focus well, and hence, you will not be able to solve complex questions and require a lot of analytical thinking and effort from your side. Please remember, you can not solve a complicated problem in a noisy place. Also, you must neither be hungry nor be so full that you start feeling sleepy.

7.2. It is better to shut the door of your room

Also, inform your family members that you are studying and want no distractions. They will honor your request most of the time.

7.3. Focus on one thing at a time

Although multitasking sounds very attractive, it is not very fruitful, especially in the long run.

7.4. Switch off your phone

Switching off or silencing your phone can make a difference day and night. Our mobiles phones are the biggest distraction in our lives, and once you switch them off, you eliminate a major distraction and you can finish homework faster.

8. Set realistic goals

Relax if your teacher has given 100 questions to solve in 2 days. You are not the only one in your class feeling stressed out. Just do your best and do not worry about the outcome. Consider yourself a human being and understand that you can only do what is possible. Do not set a goal to solve all those 100 questions in two days. More often than not, you won’t be able to achieve such unrealistic targets. It is ok not to achieve 100% grades every time. 

You can break a more extensive homework into smaller chunks of 10 questions in one sitting. If you achieve these smaller goals, you will keep getting motivated to work on more and more problems. This way, you won’t get disheartened to see that you have done only 10 questions or 20 questions out of the 100 questions so far.

9. Take breaks and have some fun

Life is too important to focus just on homework. Although very important, homework is not the most crucial thing in your life. Take breaks if you feel stressed out and do what you like in between. It will freshen your mind and body, so next time you start doing your homework again, you will feel more energetic and focussed and do better.

We hope these tips will help you finish your homework faster and more efficiently.
