Effective note-taking is vital for students, especially in the health sciences, where full knowledge and retention of complicated materials are required. This study aims to examine the use of note-taking methods across several Health Sciences subjects

among Grade 12 students. The study aims to identify the most widely utilized note- taking methods, assess their usefulness in supporting knowledge acquisition and

retention, and investigate potential variances in utilization across several Health Sciences fields. This study strategy is a quantitative method the researchers will utilize called Casual-Comparative Research. Participants will be Grade 12 students engaged in health sciences subjects such as Anatomy & Physiology and Public Health. The sample will be chosen using a purposive sampling approach to guarantee representation across multiple health sciences subjects, sample. The study surveyed 100 respondents from the Grade 12 students from De La Salle Medical Health Sciences Institute. The survey consisted of a self-made questionnaire to gather information on the types of note-taking methods employed by students, their perceived effectiveness, and any potential variations among different subjects. Overall, the findings demonstrate the usefulness of Outlining, Cornell, and Mapping note-taking methods among the Grade 12 students of De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute taking health sciences subjects. The results also highlight the necessity of considering subject-specific variables when taking notes, implying the need for customized tactics to enhance learning outcomes. This study is needed to understand note-taking preferences and their impact on academic performance.
