No, you should keep them, you never know when they will come in handy.

I still have my GCSE maths stuff and revision stuff for other subjects and whilst I don't need them(maths anyway) I have kept them because my little sister could use them and they could be handy for my A levels.

I've lost most of my old study materials, I have no idea where they are. I've kept some of my A-Level notebooks. So many pyromaniacs on this thread, wow...

I have got revison guides and notes. Should I keep all or just the revison guides? I have like a meter height pile of revision notes.

Throw them, but there's a couple things i wish i kept now, they were work that teachers greatly praised me for so i wish i kept them as they act as proof of your hard work, i have kept a couple of things though, but for the most part i get rid cos i'm not a hoarder, i'm a real minimalist and look for any excuse to throw stuff out, anything that feels cluttery, and school stuff definitely feels like that

Burning them just doesn't feel right. I've spent so long on all those notes, so I feel like I have to keep them to justify the amount of time I spent on them :lol:
Still have all my GCSE notes and currently in the process of storing away all my AS notes :lol: Sometimes when I'm bored I flick through my old notes and laugh at how **** my writing used to be xD

I will keep like one or two exercise books but throw the rest out because I'm too trying to get rid of stuff I don't need.

Hmmm.....

I will keep them both just in case but if you genuinely feel like you want need some of them then throw them away or maybe donate the revision guides to charity or something.

Anything that I've bought (English books for example - I still have Animal Farm in my cupboard, and Music Anthologies) automatically stays. Anything that I'm continuing (so French stuff, for example) stays as well.

I kept some old unneeded stuff in a box but never got an opportunity to burn it (which I really wanted to do) so it went in the recycling once the box got too full.

Revision stuff rarely makes any sense to me after exams, so that goes.

Basically I keep things just to reminisce, but I have to be brutal when it comes to actual notes.

I'm keeping like one GCSE exercise book and then I'm going to open it like 30 years later, show my kids and laugh at how stupid my thinking used to be.
