Sorry if this sounds a bit silly.

What would be the best way to store my a-level notes?
Should I;
a - use a folder for each individual subject, including separate ones for maths and further maths.
b - use a folder for each individual subject, but only one for maths and further maths.
c - keep all my work in one folder and divide it up using those card separator devices.

I had 4 seperate folders last year and it was hell, this year I'm going for spiral bound books - one per a subject but at least there won't be all that loose paper. By the way, maths takes up loads of paper.

I did C last year, using a lever arch folder. It was full up within a couple of months.

I would advise that you do B.

After a few weeks of using A I started leaving the notes in my notepad, then after another few weeks I just left the notes floating around in my bag :rolleyes: . I ended up throwing all of my notes away and revising out of text books, worked though.

I only had folders for Business and Computing, in Maths we had old stylee excercise books.
In Business I had three folders! One for each module! And they were all full and the rings kept coming open and then everything would get mixed up.

I threw all my A Level notes away this summer - totally useless for anything now! But I did need a year's distance to feel happy doing it.

I had a folder for each module too! Those super huge 4inch types. I had hundreds of notes etc.. made by myself and handed out by teachers.

I started with C, and then as I progressed through the term bought more folders and went with A once I'd overflowed the first folder.

Do A. I had a folder for all my maths past papers (including further maths, AEA and Olympiad and STEP) basically because I didn't take any note.

You'll need two folders for maths... infact I ended up with 3 in 1 year for Maths A-level... but that's just cos I had tonnes of pure homework. So do A!

I started off with A/B but soon got fed up of having to carry four or so folders in to school everyday. So now I do C. And when it starts getting full I just move some of the old work out of it into seperate folders at home. It means you won't forget anything and you will have less to carry!

i had a normal ringbinder for each of my subjects (plus massive file for art) and when the files got full i'd transfer stuff to a lever arch...i now have a lever arch and a half for biology A2, a lever arch for biology AS, and a lever arch and a half for all my german. some of my friends just used one ringbinder for every subject, transferred the notes when the topic was finished etc. either works.

I have another folder of current stuff... a bit of stuff that I'm working on for each subject. So I carry that to college... leaving the big ones with all the work I've done at home

Shove them in your bag, chuck them on the floor when you get home.
