    Starting sixth from on thursday and i dont know what note books and things i need. How do people usually organise their work? Do i have a large note book per subjct or is it better another way?

    If its anything like my sixth form the aim has to be having as little stuff at college as possible while still being organised.
    So basically the best way is probably 1 A4 notepad and a daily folder in your bag each day, and larger folders for each subject at home which your daily folder can be emptied into (the best way of doing this is probably emptying out the previous weeks work at the end of the following week, so that you always have the work from the last few lessons with you).
    Split your folders at home into units, and where possible sub topics within units.
    You will also need pens (2 of black, blue, red and green if possible), 2 pencils, rubber, ruler and calculator (highlighters may also be useful depending on subjects), and possibly some specialist equipment if studying arty subjects, but otherwise anything else will just weigh down your already heavy bag.

    Thank you, is this what most people usually do?
