Spend a little time educating yourself about time management.
Use a time management log to find out what your time wasters are.
Make a weekly schedule and include all the important things to you in it.
Go to bed earlier and get up earlier. Use that extra time in the morning to do homework or chores so then you have more free time later on.
Use the time you commute to school and back for revision or homework
If your home is noisy or distracting go to the library to do your homework.
Keep you things organized, stop losing books and homework assignments.
Don't be either to focused on your social life or to focused on your studies. Being a teenager is about the whole experience.
Use a homework diary, and break large assignments into smaller chunks.
Turn your phone off during homework time, the distractions will make it take longer.
Check how your schedule is going once a week, adjust as necessary.
Use one or two lunch times a week to get a head start on your homework.
Get a study buddy. It will be easier to be responsible for your time management skills with a friend. Agree to do a certain amount of homework/study together and then do something fun together as your reward.
