I haven't started A-Levels yet either, but from what I've gathered from others, you don't really need square paper

They sell some in Paperchase (at least they did a few months ago), they're brown on the outside and A5, but really good quality. They probably also sell them online

Though being honest, I'd advise going for A4 plain paper, it's how your exams will be and the questions are much longer than GCSE so you can still easily keep it neat.

Thank you, do they also sell them in A4?

Did a-levels maths and dint use squared paper. Nobody in my class used it either. We just used regular lined paper, it’s a bit of change from using squared but you get used to it quickly. No need to bother with it tbh.

Just a regular a4 lined paper notebook that you can buy from Poundland. Trust me, you’re going to go through a lot of paper at a-level, you don’t need it to be ‘high quality’, more like high quantity. You can thick A4 lined paper notebooks from Poundland that contain about 300 sheets. If not Poundland, then WHSmith is a good place to go. Don’t get cute looking, small dainty notebooks and don’t bother with overpriced notebooks either. Won’t be worth it.

This is why you get a surface or an ipad if you can. I have a surface pro, haven't paid for paper for like a year. I was going through the paper way to quickly and organising them is so much hastle.

I struggled finding reasonably priced squared paper. You will go through loads so you’ll probably just get the cheapest A4 notebooks you can find. There was a Poundland next to my college, so most people ended up writing on the same cheap refill pads from there.
After a bit I stopped caring whether it was squared, lined or just plain.

I wouldn’t go smaller that A4 though, it makes your working out messy and problem solving gets harder on long questions.

Thank you so much. Most people are saying to use cheapish lined paper so i think ill buy a refill pad for the start of my day folder

Lined paper is fine but at times (well from own experience) when doing graph transformations teachers have said to use squared paper

May as well just bring in lined, but take in some squared paper if you know that you'll need it for a certain lesson, and that the teacher won't have any to give out.
