    1 month of starting a levels and still confused on how to organise my notes and school work. I
    have 4 lever arch folders for each subjects and a day folder. And just keep loose sheets in my lever arch.
    I'm doing my revision notes on pukka pads because it's easier for me. But idk how to organise my school sheets and work??
    Basically do you think it's better if I work out an exercise book and keep it all there. Or notes on lined paper and put it in folders?
    It would be incredible if you can help and how you organised for a levels etc. Thanks

    I too have 3 lever arch files and a day folder. Normally what i do is i take notes in class in my refill pad and then in my frees i "rip" them out and re-write them in the same refill pad (you don't have to do this if you dont want to re write your notes but it helps me revise at the same time making my notes look neat for later revision). Although i call it a day folder i keep my notes in there until a topic is done which is several weeks. i have 6 teachers so i have 6 dividers for each teacher. My dividers are colour coordinated so i have two shades for each teacher per subject (for example i do biology chemistry physics and say for physics i have a light blue divider and a dark blue divider-this way i know it is physics but they are the work of two different teachers. The reason why i keep my notes in my ring binder until a topic is done just incase i have to refer to previous work. When a teacher tells me we are done with a topic i transfer it into my lever arch file. This has been an awesome organisation method for me. I also have a plastic pouch (the ones with holes i cant remember the name lol) at the front of my ring binder and this is to put lose sheets given by my teachers which i then hole punch in my frees and put in my folder. Its also a convenient place to put my timetable.

    So as for your second question- i used to write in pukka pads and was convinced i was going to keep it up but i found in inconvenient when i could do all my notes in my refill pad which can all be kept in one place in my ring binder so i carried less stuff.

    Hope that helped

    Well after a topic is done I transfer all those notes into my lever arch file, so essentially yes. Its much more accessible compared to having a notebook just incase u want to revise for something specific in the future u don’t have to carry your whole lever arch file/textbook to school u can just take the notes u need.
