    I have started my GCSE Notes and I'm unhappy with my notes layout.

    Title
    Chapter Title
    Notes (including tables/graphs)

    The key words are in PURPLE
    The Titles are in GREEN
    The Equations are in BLUE
    Diagram Annotation is PURPLE

    Is this layout of notes as well as colour scheme any good?
    Do you have any other suggestions of how I could layout my notes?

    Blue pen and a red pen are the only two colours I use. Then I use colouring pencils for diagrams. The main thing is that you are using bullet points and stuff and only noting the stuff that is relevant and you will need in the exam. Personally colour coding doesn't help me so I don't spend time trying to change colours. Although once I have made my notes, I summarise them even further into flashcards which I bring to school and read. I like writing on blank pages for notes. Spider diagrams can be useful for certain concepts (not all).My personal advice would be that don't make a particular format for revision. Use two/three pens and colouring pencils and that's all you need. Good luck and if you need other info about revision, why not check out my blog on tsr☺️

    My advice would be to write them out in rough first, and then copy them out into colour coded/neat versions. This way you're repeating the knowledge twice, and when you're writing them the first time you can concentrate on the content rather than the layout. It sounds good though!

    Thank you for your advice! Seems like I've got a lot of work to do
