    When I'm revising and making notes I write things down to help me think things through and link ideas. When I'm done I throw my notes away. Do you keep your old notes? I'm in the process of making revision sheets for biology for complex topics if I had used my old notes it would be terrible

    I still have most of my notes. I am actually throwing most of mines tomorrow and starting all over again to refresh my memory.

    From A-Level, I kept some that may be useful at uni. I used a couple in my first year.
    Then I threw the rest away, a couple of my friends burnt them but I feel quite uneasy about burning books or other types of written knowledge.

    I've kept all of my notes from AS onwards. Going into my second year of university and still finding use for the notes sometimes. I recommend keeping them, even in a box in the attic if must be.
