    I've just finished my last exam today and im not sure whether I should keep any of my notes.
    I've been thinking that the only reason I might need to keep my notes are for like retaking exams but that's it.
    In the case that I am not retaking any of my exams, should I keep any of my notes?

    Was thinking the same thing
    Would it be wise to keep science cgp books from year 11? Would they come in handy?

    I highly doubt they'd be useful for A-levels but I think you might want to keep something to look back on 10 years' time for the nostalgia.

    I would keep them - some notes really come in handy depending on what a levels you are taking. Also they are useful if you want to become a tutor. I have used my GCSE notes during my A levels as some topics are the same

    If you're not retaking any exams, then probably not. The level of depth you need to go into at A-level is a lot higher than at GCSE, so it's unlikely you would need them. I put the majority of mine in a bonfire after GCSEs and kept the subjects I was doing at A-Level. I've just finished my A2s and I don't think I used them once. You could always keep them just to have a look at a few years down the line, but it is pretty satisfying to burn them.

    Keep the ones you're doing at A level and perhaps the core subjects as well.

    Keep the core subject notes in case you have to retake, but I don't see why you need to keep any of the others.

    You could save them for bonfire night, my friends did and threw all his old notes into a massive fire 😉
    Or keep them if you feel as if you've failed the exam, otherwise they're worthless.
