    Im in abit of a pickle, Im not at uni but I am self-studying for a certain exam using a combination of videos (which I pay for on a per month) the clock is ticking and the exam is soon, Im finding that because its a deep subject and Im writing the notes its taking me 5x longer to get through one section of the book (each section is weighty) Does anyone know of any good note taking software that ables you to organise notes for typing on a computer? Or has anyone used this method of revision before? Ive always been told its better to hand write your notes, in regards to actually memorising the content.

    One-Note it's really good. You can organise your notes very well.

    Also you should study first and THEN take notes: that will act as a form of light revision as well since you already know the material (I do this and it's quite effective).

    And tbh I retain even when I take notes on my laptop since I pay attention and read aloud when typing. Hand-writing notes it's too much of a hassle. I only hand write flashcards and unit outlines.
Should predicted grades be removed from the uni application process
