I personally had a lever-arch file for each of my subjects. I used dividers to separate the topics. I then had a separate ring-binder file for each subject for revision notes.

I went to WHSmith or Tesco for stationery - Ryman is really overpriced imo. I got some felt tip pens and gel pens to make mind maps and stick them on the walls.

I’d suggest a lever arch folder that you take in on a daily basis which has all your subjects in there and then as you reach the end of the topic you transfer it to another lever arch folder (one for each subject) which you leave at home.
I’d also suggest that over the holidays etc or when you have time for doing your own work you condensed the notes down so that you have the important information from each chapter in a clear and easy to read way which is probably nearer than what you wrote in lessons (unless you are one of those people who can make notes perfectly first time) and don’t just copy condense and pick the most important info. I’ve done this with chemistry and physics and now have the entire course for both taking up less than half a ringbinder which I can take in for revision.
See what works for you but make sure you keep your year 12 stuff organised or you will regret it in year 13 (which is what happened to me)

Also buy paper. So much paper. I bought 9 of the 300 page packs late year 12, I have 1 and a half left. But bulk buying it was very useful.

You're doing A Levels in wordy subs so I'm not sure how much I can relate here (i just brought a pen and my calculator :rofl:)

Make sure you've got some nice ring-binders/something to keep your notes nice and secure,

you're going to need a lot of notepads

lots

i've gone through 12 300 page notepads so far.

I’d recommend Wilkos for stationery. I bought 3 lever arch files for £2 each so my total came to £6 when in WHSmiths, 1 lever arch file costs around £6 which is overpriced. Wilkos have branded pens too like bic and papermate for cheaper than most shops would sell them for. Hope that helped.
