    My course is maths and I'm not sure of what I should take. I have a rough idea but I guess I'm just panicking. If anyone can help me, then please do! Thanks.

    i feel exactly the same. I feel like a calculator is probably a good idea, maybe a graphics one but im not sure... Does your uni not give you a list on its website?

    I'm not sure if I need folders too. I used them for A-levels but never looked back at them...

    ESSENTIAL
    -Calculator (check your unis exam regulations first as then you can make sure to buy one you can use in exams).
    -Pens (you need at least one bright colour to annotate notes, I just used red biros)
    -Pencils, Ruler, Sharpener, Rubber (for drawing graphs and diagrams)
    -Paper (you will need this to hand in tutorial answers even if you write your notes in a book)
    -Clear Pencil Case (so you can use it in exams)

    RECOMMENDED
    -Exercise books /folder (I prefer writing notes in exercise books so they stay together, you could also use a folder instead. You will want to refer to notes from previous modules throughout your degree so at least keep them organised until you graduate)
    -Laptop
    - At least one good exam pen in blue or black (so a very smooth gel pen or a fountain pen, depending on your preference, something you can write with for ages!)
    -Academic Diary

    USEFUL
    -Highlighters
    -Lever Arch folder (collate notes at the end of each term into a bigger folder for future reference)
    -Box folder or document wallet (for important documents like Student Loans letters, etc)
    -Cheap Tablet (so you can read PDFs / powerpoints on the go, you could also use a smartphone or a small laptop)

    Source: just graduated and I found all this stuff very useful!
