  • As the esteemed @longstockingpipi says, "Trim your notes every time you revise".

    Not a note-maker, but it shouldn't exceed a page a day at max. At most two, for important topics
    Prelims: 3. Mains: 1. Interview: 1. Rank: (?)
    Literature of English Language.

    There is no fixed limit as length of notes depends on size of paper , handwriting , notation system and note making skills.

    Some tips.

    1.Use shorter phrases and emphasize on key words.
    2.If you write on A4 paper , divide it into two halves and make column notes.
    3.Use mind maps , flowcharts , diagrams etc.
    4.Instead of noting stuff down.Comprehend and write it in your own words as concisely as possible.
    5.If you can't shorten them , trim them to the point that they are keywords that activate memory of the topic.

    Prepare notes for Pre and Mains separately.
