Note making – partic Pre-Release Info

GCSE and A Level Notes


This makes an easy to refer to essay sheet and a ‘crib’ sheet for exams. (you can even colour code the background to each separate topic group)  


note template


Notes   (also make a calculation crib sheet where necessary)- divide a page into two columns and put the info on the left and an example on the right –

cross reference it into the end column of the note sheet described below.  GCSE maths is mostly ok for Economics for example – bbc bytesize website has info


Your could use A five column table in word with lots of rows in the following way


(You will need a copy of your specification and the information from it needs to go in your notes with the main topic – ususally just one or

two sentances in the far left column and then the topics amplification (more detailed) in the

second column).


once you have your specification info input into the table you can add any notes you need in the third column and text book reference or other links

in the end column with any analysis – maybe past paper question details for example, youtube links.  It doesn’t matter how

deep the rows become as long as you save the file it will just keep editing down the page.

word table editing info

To insert rows right click in one cell and go insert rows … if you highlight say five rows and then right click in one of them 

(only one cell not on a border) and choose insert row – it should insert five more rows.


If you have pre-release material make two sets of the template and use one for Theory and one for the Pre-Release material.


Download your pre-release material, copy it into word and then make the file double spacing by highlighting all the document and

clicking on the arrow in the bottom corner of the paragraph menu and change the spacing to double.

You can then easily add notes in-between lines in a different font colour – if you change the document font colour altogether you can

and revert back to black or vice versa.  Check each line against the specification theory
