    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.
    Wow i'm surprised anyone gets folder checks. My teachers couldn't really care less what I did outside of lessons.

    I hardly ever wrote notes, and the ones i did were random words i needed to rememeber (when you look at a word and you can't remember it for the life of you).

    I've not started AS Levels yet, but from a GCSE perspective, msot notes are in the form of exercise books, so the date on which a certain piece of work was completed was all the organisation of notes I I needed especially with not having many worksheets etc.Although for AS Level, I think I'll definiately have a folder for each subject - not sure about typing notes up though - I suppose it depends on the workload, but some people do learn by typing up notes and it adds to presentation, so it would be useful for some, if not for others.

    well my school notes are really hard to read...so i rewrite them all (apart from environment systems where the teacher wrote eveyrything importand on the whiteboard, so it's easy to have the notes organised from the class) - just like having my notes neat - and what more, this rewriting is the best way to learn the things

    I don't usually type the notes out, not because I'm lazy but because I don't think it's worth the time and that it's not necessary.

    Yeah, we had them quite regularly, for all lessons, especially History. Annoying mostly, but also useful in a way as it forced me to keep track of all my notes and try and maintain a vague sense of order.
