Are your notes neat? Are they logically ordered, i.e. chronologically? Do you take extra care ensuring your notes are highly presentable?

I don't.


(But it would be nice to see what the rest of you are like).

I'm really bad at organisation, I try to keep all my notes in one place but it doesn't really work! Everything somehow gets done so its alright in the end but I'm not one for making rigid timetables and sticking to it. Although in actual note taking process I'm pretty good as I like it all to look symetrical and balanced on the paper :rolleyes:

i pretty bad. Most of my notes are really organised except Psychology. Theres just too much of it and i cant fit it all in a folder making it difficult. I am dead picky if my notes dont look neat. Im a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to presentation.

Note-taking is not really for me, since I've got a photographic memory.

Yeah, I'm very organised. I have an A4 lever-arch file for French, one for English lit, 2 for sociology (1 for each exam module) and 3 for history (one for each module). It was the same at AS except that I only had 2 for history because there was a coursework module. I also have A4 ringbinders for AS and A2 sociology coursework and AS history coursework. All the lever-arch files have subject dividers and plastic wallets. I'm a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to notes; they always have to be neat, and if I've made too many mistakes I sometimes start again! Shouldn't really because it's probably not the most valuable use of my time, but I can't help it!

lmao - im the most DISORAGNISED person going. My writing's awful, i never file notes, i only take what i need to college, and i always forget my ID badge lol. In fact - im not sure how i manage to turn up for exams :s Im a complete mess really when it comes to organising my stuff.

However - time wise, im very organised. I set time aside for everything. As i dont live with my parents i have to organise time between housework and homework as well as free time. I do all my homework at college in my free afternoons and mornings, and allocate times for housework - escept the ironing... i always leave that as long as possible lol.

My stuff is really orginised for college. I have folders for each subject that are only used for their respected subject use and keep them all in order. I get annoyed when people borrow something from them and don't put it back where they got it from like someone did today :mad: . I have to keep it orginised as I'm doing it 3 A-Levels in one year, talk about hard work. The only way you can get by is to be orginised.

Saying that though it's amazing I do actually do my homework and learn my lines as I don't orginise my time that well. Good thing it's managing to work out okay at the moment, hehe. I probably should start to orginise my time better though.

Also my room isn't all that orginised although I am getting better .

I'm poorly organised especially as my English book is such a mess! There are pieces of paper stuffed in there etc, but ironically it is the subject I'm best at! I'm fairly organised with Economics, but am not that good in understanding it completely, so there are little bits I need to get sorted out.

My handwriting is quite bad, it changes all the time, but now I've stuck with a handwriting that I like.

My notes are ordered in the order i write them! I must admit they are digustingly neat, i'm a perfectionist when in comes to my notes.

However im not organised in the sense that, i leave all my work till sunday, and have a blitz, and i generally leave things to the last minute. I also can not keep a rountine (im ment to be revising for mocks as i type), oo and you do not want to see my room!

It bothers me when I have to cross something out because I've made a mistake or things aren't filed in precisely the right order! I don't really even use my notes to revise (I prefer the original material - i.e. the textbook - and supplementary sheets) but, for some bizarre reason, it's really important for me to have a tidy and presentable file. I suppose it's partly because we have termly file checks and partly because I can see the progress I'm making if everything is set out neatly. (It's probably also because I'm pedantic...)

I think i'm obsessively organised. I don't really want to look at my work until it is presented in a way that grabs my attention and calls to me. To be honest, I would be helpless without my files, as everything would be all over the place!

I just have one big lever arch file. The notes from each lesson just go on top of the pile, all loose. Homework is left until the night before.
