Is it worth keeping my GCSE notes for A-levels or should I get rid of them (I want to keep the notebook for a-level notes as there isn't much in it). I'm doing A-level Bio, Chem and English Language. I know a lot of the information at a-level is taught in more depth so don't know whether it's worth just writing new notes in more detail as I go through year 12 and year 13.

Hi,

Can't really comment on your subjects as I do English Literature, Psychology and Law. I kept my GCSE notes for Psychology and English Literature. Whilst they aren't as in depth as the new A-level content it still helps, particulary if it's a complicated thing you're struggling to get. I'd definitely keep them if I were you.

i am in year 12 moving onto year 13. i am not doing those sciences but honestly you should keep them coz some of the bio and chem stuff is the same but in way more depth and the exam questions are way harder. so keep the important ones i guess that link to a level.

Nah I wouldn't bother, it could actually be detrimental if you use your GCSE notes because you might answer questions in GCSE terms. I just finished my a levels, I did maths, chem and bio, the topics that you do learn that are similar to the ones in GCSE you will do in much greater detail with better vocabulary so GCSE notes are worthless really. Make new notes, do lots of exam questions and you will be good.

You should keep them for bio and chemistry for at least the summer but you dont need to go over it if you are confident in that material so dont worry. You wont go over gcse material again so if you want to have those notes just in case for a basic foundation, keep it till yr 12 until you dont need them. Defo bin english language though.

If you have revision guides keep those as they're quite helpful for summaries. Helped me with AS biology.
