    Sorry if this is a stupid question but I would like to know what the difference is between a sixth form college timetable and a college timetable. I know in sixth forms you have free periods but I think it is different for college? If anyone who goes to a college has a timetable they can show me that would be fab.

    By the way I want to know as I heard some colleges have 3 day weeks where as sixth forms are 5 days a week.

    Thank you

    Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.

    You can also find the Exam Thread list for A-levels here and GCSE here. :dumbells:

    In college, or at least my brother college he doesn't need to come to school at the start of school time like at a sixth form. As sixth forms are part of a school, you have to come to school at the time the school starts and whereas in college you can just go to school when your lesson starts. When your lesson finishes in college you cal also leave if you dont have anymore lessons, so in my brothers college he doesn't have any "free periods" because he just leaves when he is done with his lessons. On tuesdays he doesn't have to go to school and on Thursday he only goes in the afternoon for an hour. For the other three days he has normal school days but on Friday finishes around 2. Overall with college your more free to come and go and your right he doesn't have a full 5 day week. In sixth form because it's part of a school the timings are more strict but I know at my school you usually have two free periods in a week and if you don't have a lesson in the afternoon you can go home.
