Group projects suck. They could be such an easy task, but sometimes it is more complicated than it needs to be. Here are 5 ways to survive any group project.
1. Divide the work
The main issue with group projects is that usually one person is left doing all of the work and that person then becomes stressed and irritable.
2. Offer your assistance
If you notice someone getting stressed or someone doing all of the work, offer a helping hand. Do this to avoid someone rushing through the work to get it done and getting a bad grade.
3. Do the work AHEAD of time
Since most of the work is done separately, it is better to do it ahead of time so that the members of the group have time to ask for help on things that they were unsure of.
4. Don't be a slacker
Do not sit there and let others do all of the work. This is just wrong and even you know it.
5. Last but not least, do not stress.
Stressing only leads to rushing which equals a bad grade. Everyone in the group wants a good grade so everyone will help each other.
Good luck everyone!
