    Put them in the loft.

    You will be able to impress your grandchildren with the sheer volume of them when they try to impress you with the fact that they have had to store 4.8 tatofillion nitabytes of virtual infracybermath resume particles in the chip behind their left ear...

    Do you think I'll get much for A level textbooks on ebay? I must have about £40 worth of AS and A2 textbooks and I have no younger brothers/sisters who can use them. They're all in pretty excellent condition and I have a couple of older textbooks with a few highlights/notes but again in decent condition. No idea what to do with them though, either sell them for a reduced price or just give them all to my college?

    even though i would love to chuck them out, i thought i best keep them because it feels a shame to throw 2 years work away and also i actually enjoyed my a levels lol so i wouldn't mind looking over notes when older if i need extra information on a part of economics i studied for example.

    Having finished exams and wanting to get rid of as much evidence of the past 7 years, what are you going to do/have done with your piles of notes?
    I also have this problem, i have all my stuff from the past 7 years i think now it is time to throw out my high school stuff but i think i will save my college stuff as it might be useful at University.

    Burnt the chemistry notes, as it's been my bugbear and the bane of my existence for the past two years, and I felt like getting my own back. Recycled the rest. I don't want them. I still have textbooks and that...I'll keep the relevant ones, but I'm planning on taking a trip back to school in September to flog off the ones I don't want to this years sixth form intake.

    Some might come in handy for University if you're going... I am keeping my GCSE revision guides for the subjects I'm taking at AS, just so I can refer back to the basics once in a while. Keep the best (most important) ones is what I say.

    I'm keeping all mine certainly until results day, because I'm a bit paranoid like that. Assuming I don't have to retake anything and no longer have any such need for my notes, I don't know...I don't want to just throw them out (actually, mine would get recycled if anything), especially having spent all that effort on them, and some of them (Latin noun tables!) will probably come in handy later on. But I don't really have space to store five massive lever arch thingies (currently they're still just on the floor), and if they're lying there then they'll remind me of school and exams and results and nasty things like that.
