Personally I like, 1 folder per subject, with 1 plastic wallet per topic/ test.
Don't get too obsessed with organising things perfectly though. You may find that you end up doing more filling than revision. 😅😉

When I write my flashcards I organise them into subject, which paper the topic is in, what topic it is and the subtopic. I find organising them by paper is really good because then when you get to GCSE you're not revising topics that aren't in that paper which I did for mocks and spent hours revising the wrong topics. You can get flashcard filers from WHSmith that are really cute and aesthetic but also helpful and you can just put it in your bag and it can hold flashcards for about 6 subjects although i found i needed more than one because they don't have dividers for 10 subjects and if not I had too many flashcards for it to hold.

I had big binders for English and the sciences, and then regular small folders for the others. But a folder a subject is pretty much the go to. I have one plastic wallet for each Chapter in the topic, and a coloured divider to separate papers.

e.g. for Biology I had 3 Wallets of C1,C2,C3 and then a divider saying Paper 2 and the remaining wallets there.

I used one folder per subject and put all my papers into each topic.
When it came to notes, I used flash cards to make small notes and highlight the top of each card in different colour corresponding to each individual topic - worked well for me

I defo recommend folders for triple science - maybe 3 for each subject like one for biology, another for chemistry and another one for physics. I recommend a small folder or those paper/plastic folder for french and RS - literally anything that stores loose sheets as you mostly work in your book. For history, it depends if you get sheets but I recommend one and using file dividers to separate them. For maths, you don’t need a folder just something to keep the past papers or questions like those paper folders. For English lit and Lang, I recommend one folder for both but it really depends on how many sheets you have. Honestly it’s your choice but if you think the lore sheets you’ll be given or create, get a folder for that subject as many do their revision differently. Good luck :rave:

I had magazine folder for most of my subjects, but having a lever arch file for english really helped to keep all of my notes on each text together. Honestly i didn’t really look back at my notes other than class ones, i mainly just wrote new ones from the text book and then threw them in the bin. This might sound stupid but the art of just writing things out by hand is very helpful with memorisation at gcse.
