I'm working at a school abroad and helping to design their IGCSE structure for next year. I'm doing most of this alone and so I have a few questions that can't be answered where I am:
On the syllabus material that I have, it says for each subject that 130 hours of teaching is recommended over 2 years. So that would mean that the same number of lessons would be dedicated to e.g. Maths than e.g. ICT.
It seems like so long ago now that I did GCSEs and so I need to be reminded of the structure. In a weekly timetable, would you have the same number of maths lessons as ICT lessons (if you do ICT of course)? And would you have double the number of Science/English lessons if you're doing Double Science and Lit/Lang. If anyone could post a copy of their timetable, that would be amazing.
Would 130 hours of teaching be average for a GCSE subject? At first glance, this doesn't seem much over 2 years. Are there differences between IGCSE and GCSE with regards to this issue?
