I've been in Y10 for about a week and 1/2 and we haven't really covered much content in terms of the courses, but should I start making notes on the content we have covered already? I really am aiming for 9s but I don't know when I should start revising/making notes.

If you’re aiming for 9s, start revising or making notes from now. It’ll make your life easier later on when the pace increases.

I would agree w/ mesopotamian - but I think if you're going to start making notes you should really make sure they're in the format and structure you'll stick to in Y11. It is such a waste of time having to redo them - yet I found myself doing exactly that all throughout my GCSE years - it's very tempting. Perhaps by sticking it out for a few lessons and maybe even waiting for a test, you'd be better equipped to know exactly what kind of revision + note-taking is most efficient + productive. I think the best thing for you to do right now would be to review lesson content and ensure you have a good understanding of what you're learning, as these first few lessons form the basis of what you learn in the future, and you can always make notes later on.

start making them now and keep making them throughout the year, keep looking over them and refreshing them as you go.
I'd make them as concise as you can, bullet points or mind maps helped me a lot but whatever works best for you.
good luck
