I'm just wondering, do you guys prefer printing off past papers or doing the papers off the computer and writing the answers on pieces of paper? I know that when you print off past papers, it's less distracting. But I feel like I'm wasting waaaay too much paper and ink?? (btw there are huge issues with the printers at my school so that's not much of a choice now... and whenever i ask my teachers for papers, they tell me to print them myself.. . .)

tbh i know this sounds stupid but does it matter if you print off papers or do it off the computer? mind you, my subjects are all sciences + maths ... like would this 'method' of revision have an impact

I do prefer a hard copy, but I have to pay for printing, so personally, I just use the computer.
It doesn't matter all that much though I tend to end up copying down more of the statement of the question by using a computer, so that my answers make sense if I want to look back over them.

I prefer writing on past papers but it's too expensive, so I just write my answers on a notepad

When I don't have to pay, definitely hard copy!! Even if it's just the condensed version which just contains the questions, and then I use filing paper...

Mainly because it means I can shut my laptop/electronic devices, and not be so tempted to distract myself!

For long A Level maths questions (Mechanics questions especially), I used to quite like writing my answers on a mini-whiteboard.

The downside is you don't keep your answers unless you take photos. But that never used to bother me.

I like to print out the questions then do the answers on a separate piece of paper so I can reuse the question papers.

I print them, double sided to save paper.
I don't feel like I'm in the exam mode/condition when I do them on a computer.
