    My handwriting is rather scruffy. Since I started college in Sept, I have handwritten all my notes. Yesterday I typed all my politics notes up and realised half of my notes do not make sense!! I am so worried I will fail because of bad info I have written down... I also have my worksheets out of order.

    History is worse because there's hardly any notes - we've done more tests than anything.

    English is okay, because we start a new topic Jan so I will just write neater.

    English Lang isn't too bad because there's not much there - mostly coursework notes which will need to be typed, because they'll come in handy come exam season.

    Questions:
    • How do you organise your notes?
    • How do you fit ALL of your folders in your bag?
    • How do you suggest I overcome the obstacles mentioned?
    Thanks

    Well I'll be of limited help, considering the subjects I did we academic and had no need for coursework etc.

    But if I were you, I would:

    Type up all of my notes firstly. Then I would arrange them in the most appropriate way for the subject.

    So, for Politics, I would arrange them alphabetically, because you'll need to know a fair few terms regarding the government for example.
