I am going into Year 10, and am wondering where would be a good place to put all my notes for each subject. Do you have any tips for organisation, and where do you personally keep your subject notes/flashcards etc.? For example, do you have a binder for each subject?

I currently keep my science notes in three separate notebooks, but I don't think those will last me long.

Put them into folders for each subject - I did 12 subjects so had 12 different folders that had textbooks / revision guides / exam questions / notes for each subject.

Did you take all your notes on A4 sheets of paper? I'm asking this because for some reason, I dislike taking notes on A4 and find it easier to memorise info on A5 or smaller

All notes I made I typed because for me it was easier to read and edit, so hopefully someone who did similar to you pops up.

I do 13 subjects- so I have 13 expandable folders with different sections.

For each subject folder I have an area for notes, written work, past papers etc. All colour coded.

It’s really useful and I advise you do the same.

I do, but I have found that it doesn't cover everything and the information is good for a summary but I still have to take quite a lot of notes from online sources

Where can I buy these for a relatively low price? I have been considering having folders with sections for each of my subjects and these sound promising.

Tesco’s have a good selection of them- but it varies by store and you have to grab them quick.

Or amazon stock a variety of expandable folders- don’t go for the cheap ones, they’ll break. Spend a little bit more on a good quality product and they will last quite awhile.

make mind maps or flashcards instead of making more notes. they're more useable in revision and actively linking topics and ideas is helpful
