The main issue I had at university (college) was time management.
My solution was to write a timetable for EVERY hour of EVERY day. Much like item 6 above.
I started with the lectures and tutorials, then added time for regular assignments.
Then meals, and all the household stuff.
I had a new page for each week. Just copied 15 weeks of pages. That way I could pencil in the different assignments and random activities.
A page for the semester that shows the deadlines for every assignment is a must.
Who wants to turn to a new week and find that there is a report due tomorrow!
By timetabling each day for 7 am to 11:30 pm, there was plenty of room to move things around if there was a problem, or a random event.
I also noted the due dates of library books, to avoid fines.
… and that was a long time before I was diagnosed.
