How to get your notes organised!

My filing of univeristy notes in the beginning...
It could not have been more of a muddled mess.
Certainly made revision hard!!
Aside from drinking and making the somewhat small student loan last as long as they can, the one other things that is a staple to student life is making notes.

And when making these notes and trying to get through university it's kind of important to get organised because there is nothing worse than trying to revise at the end of the year and being unable to find the one set of notes for the one thing you don't understand...

So today I'm sharing the 4 things I did to make sure I didn't fall into the same trap year on year.

1&2. Put your notes in order and in their own folder - When you start taking notes, place them in a folder in order. I found that the order in which you get taught is the best order to put the notes in, so that when you go to revise, you start with the easier themes and ideas and then build on them, much like you would have done when you were taught.  Put each subject separately in different folders so that you don't get everything muddled! (I bought mine from Wilko's, who are perfect for the limited student budget!)

3. Make sure you don't miss notes - Missing notes from missing lectures is not great when it comes to revision. Avoid missing lectures at all costs, and if you do, make sure you catch up on the notes. Don't leave gaps in your notes and your knowledge.

4. Back up your notes - If you are like me and have this tendency to misplace important pieces of paper such as notes or bills, I have found that the best thing for me to do is to type up my notes, either on my Ipad during lectures, or on the laptop after and then saving them in order so that I always have a copy, even if I manage to lose the actual paper copy.

What do you think? How to you keep on top of the notes at university?
