It definitely depends on the class and how well you’re doing in it.
On average, I’d say I spent 2 hours a night on homework? Sometimes more if I had heavy readings or had to write a paper, or work on a problem set. Definitely more like 3-4 hours a night during midterms/finals period.
But I truly think that if you can stay on top of your work, doing small attainable chunks EVERY day, then you shouldn’t have to slave over homework every night. The trick is not procrastinating and creating more work for yourself, which admittedly, is hard to do.
It also helps to create a schedule where you have “off” days to catch up on work. Most commonly, classes are offered three times a week M,W,F for an hour, or twice a week Tu,Th for an hour and a half. If you can make it so that most your classes are on the M,W,F schedule, you can use Tu,Th to do homework. Class one day, homework the next. That’s what worked for me.
Best of luck! Readers, do you have any other tips?
