    FREE FO- oh.

    Interesting idea. Do you pay back interest? Give loans? Or are you guys literally just an alternative to keeping your money at home?

    More importantly, when do you run away with the cash?
    Students get interest!
    Don't give loans, basically an alternative but also to teach kids on finance. Mostly Year 7s who are interested because sixth forms couldn't care less

    I'm quite ticked off that I wasn't signed up to spend one of my free periods every two weeks helping out in a lower school Maths class, just because my form tutor didn't actually submit the form we all put our names on Would have been enriching.

    I do this and my 'students' don't do anything, they just sit there and talk amongst themselves. I get paid £5 per hour so I can't complain

    Do you take a class by yourself or something? I would have been effectively a teaching assistant in a class. Unpaid, but I wasn't planning on doing it for the money :pierre:

    I'm loving the free:lesson ratio, unfortunately you can't quite beat my Wednesday week B

    P1: Free
    P2: Physics, we did a test, got an A!!!!! (so pleased, first sign of good progress so far this year).
    P3: Free
    P4: Free
    P5: I had a free but - plot twist - I also made myself a cup of tea
    I definitely can't beat! Still feel privileged that I have at least one free every day - having no full days anymore is great!

    You lucky English folk, I'm just casually scrolling through this thread and I see some of your timetables - :eek: - some of you have FOUR frees (I'm talking about you financier!). I'm taking 5 Highers and suffice to say, the stress is starting to show: I've had about 4 NABs already, done 5 essays for English, 4 physics tests (failed every one bar the last one we had), 6 practical assessments for Technological Studies; 3 essays, 3 listening practice NABs and 3 "Directed Wrtings" for French.

    For each subject I have 6 periods a week plus an enrichment where we have to learn how to record songs, host live gigs in our school and perform in front of the school (first one's tomorrow!)

    Help ME!

    I've also got 2 English essays due tomorrow, why, cruel world why?

    Well the peer reading volunteers list is full in the first day I don't know how to 'give back to the community' now

    On the plus side I get a day off next week to go to a uni open day on top of a teacher strike, score!

    Also, is it me or is the entire math course being taught to us in a matter of a few school terms? Or is there really that much coursework to get though O.O

    I just write the subject title, examples from the board, answer the questions given and job done But i'd like to make neat/annotated versions where each sheet explains concisely each topic, bullet points and whatnot, maybe even underline parts in answers that get the marks, right now everything isl thrown in a folder under the subject title
