Say goodbye to forgotten tasks and hello to an organised student life.

2. Evernote

Evernote is the go-to app for taking notes. It helps you keep your notes organised by using digital "notebooks" and grouping them into "stacks" for better organisation. The best part is that Evernote syncs across all your devices and backs up your notes to the cloud. You can create notes with text, images, PDFs, and even audio recordings.

3. Grammarly

Install the Grammarly browser extension, and it will automatically highlight mistakes in your writing, whether you're composing an email or working on a Google Docs document. The best part? It's free!

4. ClickUp

ClickUp is a powerful tool for managing big projects or even entire companies. It offers different levels of hierarchy for organising your tasks. You can view your projects in list, calendar, and kanban views, which are great for tracking projects with multiple stages. For complex projects, you can create subtasks, task dependencies, and assign multiple people to a single task.

5. Freedom

Do you find yourself easily distracted by websites and apps when you should be studying or working? Freedom can help. This cross-platform app lets you block distracting websites and apps until you decide to turn them back on. You can even schedule Freedom to block apps during your dedicated work or study hours. Need some serious focus? Freedom offers a "Locked Mode" that prevents you from disabling it until your timer runs out.

These five apps are your ticket to becoming a more organised and productive student. Start using them today, and you will be on your way to getting more done in less time.
