Hi Guys,

Just wondered what you guys thought about the following: I have, left over from my GCSEs in Economics and a couple of other subjects, some (in my opinion good quality notes and spider diagrams and none of which is copied from textbooks) which I have handwritten.

Since my GCSEs they have been piling up in the cupboard and, since I don't know of anyone who wants them specifically, my mind turned to selling them, maybe on eBay or something to make a bit of money..

First, is this buying / selling revision notes a done thing?
Second, how much do you think I could get- if anything- for them? :P

Your thoughts would be appreciated, cheers

Scan a sample and sell them on Ebay in sets of subjects and stuff. You could make a nice business. Call them something catchy like ''guide to an A'' and they should be sold, no more than £1 I'd guesstimate.

An Irish guy sold his Leaving Certificate revision notes after getting the highest possible grades. He got €3000 for them on eBay, added up.(!!!)
If your notes and grades are good, then go for it!

Yea tho the irish guy's (IM IRISH SO THAT SOUNDS WEIRD) notes were for leaving cert exams which are the same as A level so they would defo get more than yours. But yea go for it, make sure you said you did well in the tests with them.

Ah, yeah I forgot about that. People would definitely pay less for GCSE ones. =/ Still, it's worth a try OP!

As long as they're your own notes there is nothing wrong with selling them (just like writing and selling a book). At the moment the best place to sell is indeed probably Ebay as has been suggested.

You also might want to put them in pdf form so they look more professional and edit them so they are consistent throughout.

Good luck!
