    so I'm about to go onto sixth form and I was wondering how many books you normally take to school on a daily basis
    I'm guessing that the number of books you take is dependent on your subjects so I will hopefully be taking a2 maths, biology, chemistry and physics (but I may change this to Spanish)

    Depends on how your school works, in maths we had none they just handed out copies if we needed them, chemistry we had 3 and physics we had a small one for each module

    Our school was so poor they could afford to give us text books to keep just to use in class. I bought them anyway and used them for revision at home. For school I only brought the folders with my notes in for the subject I had that day and a notepad. Weight of my bag therefore depended on how many lessons and what time of year. Eg beginning of the year I had no notes so my bag was light. End of the year my folders were full and I brought in textbooks to revise in the library so bag was heavy.

    Well. I do 3 Alevels but you don't need a folder for art, so i carry 2 folders of work in my bag. Plus i may carry some revision books or books i borrowed from the library. It depends really.

    I tried to carry as little as possible. I was lucky to have a pretty big locker though.
