    Personally I type my notes. I think its better because firstly its quicker, secondly if you lost your written notes you would have write them all out again but if you had typed them, you can print them out again. Lastly, since a levels are linear, if you notes get a bit scruffy over the two years , again you can make amendments to typed notes and print out a new neat copy

    Personally I like to type my notes where possible, for several reasons: 1) I can type much faster than I can handwrite, 2) it's easier to edit typed notes and keep them neat, and 3) you can make back up copies so there's less chance of losing them (whereas if you lost a folder of handwritten notes you may not be able to get them back so easily).

    I prefer writing out my notes. I just find it sticks for longer if I write it all out rather than typing it. As exams draw nearer I turn them into acronyms and rewrite them again

    Yes, I guess it is best for me to hand write my notes again and again as I will remember them more easily when it comes to my AS exam. Plus, in all my exams I will be writing, so it's best for me to get used to writing faster and neatly. Also when do you recommend all notes to be done at AS level? Thanks 😀

    It really depends on the subject also. I mean I don't think anybody here would waste their time typing up notes for subjects like Physics and Maths, however essay based subjects would be fine to make typed notes for.

    Well I'm doing A-Levels this year and I'm trying to get all my notes done by mid-March (I'm just learning ahead of what we're learning in class) so that all I have to do after that is just keep practicing past papers and writing essays. I'm also doing Maths papers constantly.

    I started doing my notes during AS in mid-April I think (emphasis on the STARTED doing...) I still managed straight As in the end, but it's always better to start early so that you have time to revise and rewrite and go over all your notes again.

    Good luck! What subjects are you doing?
