    Okay so I may be very slightly early but I love stationery so let's go with it. So I am taking: Ancient History, Maths, Physics and Philosophy (hopefully) and I will only have two lessons a day. What is the best filing system and what stationery do you recommend?

    I was thinking of a lever arch file and note pad per subject is this recommended? Also would a expandable file be useful? Any extra advice about A levels?
    Thanks,

    Yes get an arch lever file for each subject! Lots of dividers to separate the topics too, I personally use plastic dividers as the holes don't rip and they look SO MUCH prettier too! Also really stock up on lined paper and black pens they run out like its nobodies business!

    For me personally when it comes to just class notes/ rough note making I just use lined paper (the ones that come in those books that you can easily tear them out of, if that makes sense haha!)
    I would use proper notebooks when it comes to revision and you want to write up your proper notes nice and neatly

    Thanks,
    Some people use one level arch for everything, separating subjects with dividers then transferring old notes into lever arches at home so they don't have to carry everything around

    I prefer to have all of my notes with me at all times so I have a ring binder for each subject and will have a lever arch for each when they get too full

    In terms of paper etc, I use Oxford refil pads as the paper is lovely :love: Also have lots of highlighters and coloured pens as teachers don't dictate how you write your notes in sixth form :woo:
