Hello, I'm in Year 11 and I have a question about your preferred method of note taking. Do you find it easier to have your notes written down on paper or typed up? This includes regular class notes, summaries etc. I'm currently trying to find an effective method to use throughout Year 11 and 12. Please let me know :oldsmile:

Hi there,
I definitely found handwriting my notes to be a much more effective study method. I found that I was able to retain information for longer periods of time, and it forced me to condense my notes so that I wasn’t wasting time writing pages and pages of notes I wouldn’t even be able to remember. To accommodate this method, I would use my laptop to summarise my notes from a textbook, and then I would revise them, learn them and understand them, and then once I’m ready, condense them into a page of handwritten notes. Then I’d basically carry these notes around everywhere I go.

Hope this helps :)

Thank you so much. Does this include the tables of information included in your English and Biology samples? I'm trying to figure out whether it would be easier to draw up the tables physically or not. Regardless of difficulty, I'm ready to put in the effort if it means I can use them well.

ahh, for my Biology tables, I used them to summarise and organise my notes based on syllabus dotpoint. After I do this, I write down my notes by hand onto loose leafs and while I’m reading and writing it down, I try to condense them in my head so that I end up with neat, concise handwritten notes that I can use as revision. I wouldn’t keep the table format as I found that writing in tables don’t give you as much room. I also make sure to write the syllabus dotpoint on the top of every page as well as a topic sentence that summarises my notes in case I will use them to answer 7-8 mark questions (where a visible structure is needed).

^here is a sample of how I wrote my bio notes!

For English, I basically just keep my notes typed as it is. Reason is because I find that I always come back to my notes after class or after re-reading my text and finding other interpretations to change my notes around or add in a really good point I found. When exams start to approach, I basically have my laptop out with my notes and I start to write essays based on the points I already have. IMO, it is only when you start writing essays when you discover your most valuable and least valuable quotes. Sometimes I’d find that my quotes aren’t general enough to be able to apply them to a generic question or etc. and so I’d go back to edit my tables on my laptop. In the end, my notes end up being some handwritten sheets of my best quotes and analysis + quotes of critical essays.

To sum it up:

Biology: I type first, then write it out w/o the table format.
English: leave my notes typed and in one place, when it comes to exams I learn and memorise my points and then summarise my best quotes into sheets/palm cards.
