What does "cram" mean in this sentence?

It's not that they're cramming for some project. It's that long-term procrastination has made them feel like a spectator, at times, in their own lives

Hope someone could explain it to me.

cramming is a colloquial word for urgent studying, such as immediately before an exam. Different countries and schools use different words for this.

It follows "to cram" which is to put more into a container than usual.
