I have seen many students complain of not having enough time to complete their final assignment which makes things hard for them. I think the students should work on their Assignments before time to avoid these last minute rush.
How many hours should a PhD student study?
What are your views?
I mostly wrote up as I went along, and the content of conference and journal papers became parts of chapters in my thesis. There was a period I then set aside to focus on the thesis in the final 6 months. Ph.D. students I encountered had quite variable working patterns, do what works for you. The hours I worked varied depending on what I was doing, when I had experiments running I would often be in the lab 7 days a week, other weeks would be less intensive. I advise aiming for around 40 hours a week on average, take breaks when needed and don't compare your work to others.
