    I think it will the former for girls, and the latter for guys in general.

    No prizes for guessing what I do. :p:

    At school, I hate it. At home, I do quite a lot, depending on the subject (Lit notes? Get outta here...)

    I put the notes behind the previous notes that I made the other lessons. I don't type the notes up.

    At school I shove them in, not really one for typing up notes; typing only for essays and so on.

    If I'm procrastinating from revision I'll try to give them some sense of order- so it counts as lazyman's revision; to reassure myself that I've haven't wasted the entire day :p:

    Not yet but as AS levels draw nearer i have ot be prepared to write a lot of notes as it isnt just a case of copying out of a text book. It also is supposed to prepare us for taking notes at uni etc.

    I have to buy myself some nice colourful plastic pockets sometime soon

    I've just finished my A-Levels and found that I never actually revised from the notes I took in class - kinda depressing when there's 6 ringbinders full of them, but, at the end of the day, I think textbooks, past papers and, of course, TSR are much more useful!

    i disagree. i am a girl and my notes are a shambles. i just keep piles of paper, which are actually impossible to revise from. although i do know a girl whose notes actually have page numbers, so i suppose the stereotype does have some basis...

    I only put sheets into plastic pockets when they are photocopies, as I hole punch them, some words on the side will be cut off. You will have loads of plastic wallets in your binder, and lots of putting in sheets into those wallets. :eek:

    Depends what subject. I find myself taking good care of my geography notes, but shoving my biology (yeuch) notes every which way.

    I never type notes up after the lesson - my handwriting isn't great but I try to make them as neat as possible the first time round and then slot them into my folder(with the plastic pockets). We were subjected to regular folder checks by teachers though so that probably accounts for some of my careful filing! lol.
