So I'm starting sixth form in September and I'm looking at starting to shop for some stationery. I'm going to be studying Maths, Further Maths, Physics and either Computing or English Literature & Language, depending on my GCSE grades and which school I choose to go to.

The main thing that I'm thinking about is that my first choice school requires us to bring a laptop to school every day because much of the learning is done using technology. Would this eliminate the need to buy loads of paper and folders? If anyone goes to a sixth form like this, what do you currently use? Thanks in advance!

Just have a reserve set just in case. Sometimes a small 80 sheet pad of paper or even a folder with assorted paper in can be used as backup. A computer isnt always the fastest and most useful tool. If you dont need it then you are only down a few pens and sheets of paper etc.

The other thing is your exams are going to be done on paper so its best you dont get out of touch with using a pen or you will be seriously slow. Just the basic stationery and a calculator that you used for GCSE will be fine.

I would have some folder/ lever arch files one for each subject with dividers.
Plastic wallets, pens, highlighters, ruler etc. Then paper. Its just stationery nothing special.

"A computer isn't always the fastest tool"= although nowadays most computers can do over 2 billion calculations per second.

So what? Is that meant to be impressive? Are you saying its always the fastest way to do things?

Depending on the task at hand, it probably will be faster in most cases. 2 billion calculations per second is impressive to me, I'd like to see how many you could do simultaneously! Obviously you have to be computer literate to maximise it's speed.
