    I've finished my GCSE exams and I just have notes, revision guides and exercise books all over my room.

    What do I do with them?

    Should I really just throw them away in the recycling bin?

    Could the be used for my A - levels at all?

    Doubt they'll be useful for A-Level.I still got my stuff..might keep it a while then try getting rid of some.

    Throw it all - burn the stuff you hate the most.

    You won't ever look at it for A-Level, trust me.

    Give your textbooks and notes to year 10s if they're doing the same spec.

    Never used my GCSE stuff at A-Level.
    Keep the revision books, and give them to someone younger than you (you know how expensive they are)
    But recycle the notes maybe? I made origami out of all of mine!
