Hey all,

I've just finished my GCSEs and was wondering if it would be beneficial for me to rewrite all of my notes from my exercise books (not revision notes) for all of the subjects I'm doing for A level and put them all in one folder seeing as I don't want to be bringing loads of years worth of books every day for subjects such as German, Spanish which carry straight on from GCSE. Does anyone think that this would be a good idea?

Thank you xx

I would not say so.

Chances are that nothing you do at A-level will have any link to what you did at GCSE. I continued English Literature and Psychology from GCSE to A-level and nothing I did was the same. In a best case scenario, you will find like one or two familiar things.

If you did German and Spanish at GCSE, I assume you already know all the GCSE material. If any material that you already know shows up at A-level, you can just ignore it and not write it as it would be embedded into you mind by then.

The essay structures and all that for A-level are a bit different from those at GCSE, so there is no point in bringing any GCSE exam tips at A-level. The only relevant GCSE things you need to know are the PEA and PEEL paragraphs.

Do you even need GCSE books at A-level? Because I did not.

I suggest you wait until you see what you do at A-level to decide whether to bring in any GCSE notes or not. I did the same and found out none of my GCSE notes would have helped, so rewriting them would have been a waste of time.

Sorry if I misunderstood what you mean by 'notes'. However, GCSE and A-level are different things and should be treated as so.
