Do you need your notes for University?

So I was just wondering whether the notes for your subjects will be useful for uni, or should I just throw them out??

It probably depends a little on the degree you choose. I personally never used by Year 12 notes for uni.

Why not put them to good use and upload them to ATAR Notes, though? :) You could help thousands of future students! ;D

Thanks for your feedback Joseph, I do however hand write all my notes which I compile from other notes and textbooks I have/find. But I'm not sure if I can upload textbooks or notes from other people on this website, I dont want to hinder with any code of conduct before I do so.

If it's not your intellectual property (ie someone else made it) then it's best not to upload unless you have their written permission.


I'm from vic not nsw, but I found that for uni (science) I didn't use my year 12 notes at all.
If you really find that you do want to brush up on highschool concepts there are heaps of digital resources which can help you too :)

Burning your notes is a rite of passage. You won't use them.






*please burn them consistent with the local fire restrictions blah blah
