    I was just wondering, after the whole reform of a levels and GCSEs, what will happen to all the old syllabus textbooks? There must be millions across the country, which are unlikely to be used again as new books will be printed for the new syllabus for each subject. I understand that teachers will be likely to use some for questions, but since in the past each student would have their own textbook and there isn't much need for them anymore, what will happen to them?

    I've chucked mine away in the recycling bin and bid them farewell. There's nothing much you can do with them. RIP GCSE books.

    There are several charities which distribute them to countries who need educational resources.
