    They'll tell you when you get there if you need to buy any books. My college lent us copies of all the textbooks.

    Literally all I took was:

    - Notepad(s)
    - Pens
    - A planner/diary thing

    And that's all I've needed thus far, though teachers have recommended I get folders.

    I bring them headphones when you are in the common room or library. Too much chatter and discussions.

    Depends on your subjects and how your teachers like to teach. I've had an experience where my teacher would take the first 2-3 lessons to go over what we're going to be learning and giving us basic knowledge before doing the actual work, and another experience where my teacher literally threw us into the deep end and made us do actual work on the first day, expecting us to have out books, folders, calculators etc right there.

    I would say just bring a notebook, pen/pencil, maybe a ruler, and a planner to write in any important info your teacher may tell you on the first day (like end of term tests, exam dates, coursework deadlines). If you don't have a calculator on you on the first day your teacher may allow you to use your phone calculator like my teacher did.
