Once dismissed as simple time-wasting or laziness, procrastination is now understood as a genuine psychological response to workload demands. Procrastination is particularly prevalent among university students, for whom the combination of numerous deadlines, lifestyle factors and pressure to succeed can make it very difficult to organise time effectively and keep on top of assignments.
