I have recently come across the software notion, which allows online note taking. As I'm starting my gcses this year, have any past students used this software, and how useful was it?

starting gcse as in year 10 or year 11?
notion is really good if you like rearranging notes and building your won structure
but rn if your doing gcses, lemme give advice cuz im in year 10 and found out some crazy stuff
DONT TAKE NOTES they are useless
use anki instead - for active recall and spaced repetition
notion is good for productivity but i suggest u dont take notes cuz its very passive

No no im saying take minimal notes - only take them in class to stay occupied
at home make flashcards out of the notes and then do them regularly
and once a week or so do past papers or practice questions
