I'm doing some of the same subjects at college as what I do now and I've heard people say that you should keep revision from the GCSE revision and some say you shouldn't and I was wondering what I should do.

My subjects I'm choosing are:
A level Geography
A level Geology
A level History
BTEC Music

I only kept my GCSE work so that my sister can use it .

I would recommend keeping it for any subjects you're taking at A level you may expected to remember the GCSE stuff (in my experience, I was )

I think its beneficial in some ways to keep it esp for the science subjects i.e. biology and chem you need to know the basics (so keep them) otherwise if you forget anything you always have something to look back on. I got rid of everything from GCSE and did not go over anything in the 3 months i had of so even if you think you know everything from GCSE you'll forget things and thats when your GCSE notes really come in handy just to recap anything you've forgotten. but if you get rid of them it's not a huge loss, just make sure to ask if you don't understand and DO NOT leave things to the last minute, i suggest to really get your stuff together by christmas if you want to succeed in A Levels..well AS first.

I thought I will need it too but it just turned out to be a waste and its just clutter now, When you get to A level you will understand that GCSE was simplifying things too much and you don't need you notes any more - especially Chemistry and Biology. It's time to make new notes!!:happy2::nothing:

I'm planning on keeping my Bio and Chem notes (don't really have maths notes) but getting rid of everything else. If you're taking humanities, the stuff probably won't be that useful (like you won't study OMAM in English Lit A Level)

Unless you have attached sentimental value to them (I doubt it) then get rid of all of your GCSE notes.

For sciences, you will realise GCSE knowledge is woefully oversimplified to the point of being lies to make it easier. For humanities, it is more about your writing which should develop by itself and reading old essays will make you cringe.
