    Hi, at my school IB students do have fee periods, however, I also had free periods when I did my iGCSEs, so I don't know if it varies with different schools... and we do have PE lessons.

    Depends on your school.

    Hey I'm doing English, history and geography higher just finished first year. My school gets free periods though they are called 'CAS time'. Yes you will get free periods. You only do 6 subjects and are bound to get frees. Whilst you still are in full time education you will have 'independent' study time.

    On a different note do ESS instead of Biology. It's much much easier and makes no difference to UNI's if you take a humanities subject.

    There is no PE it's not part of the IB as its not mandatory part of education post-16. Just join a sports team instead of do stuff outside of school
