I've finished GCSEs now, but this was last year (lessons one hour long):
3 lessons for Maths
3 lessons for English
4 lessons for Science (had different teachers for the three, and there was a rotation system whereby you'd have two lessons of two for seven weeks, then one would swap and so on)
2 lessons for Option subjects (Music, languages, History etc.)

The subjects you used were weird so...
How our timetabling works:
There are four blocks - A, B, C, D of ten lessons each. These four blocks are then split into two further blocks (AA, AB, BA etc). At GCSE (not sure about the rest of the school) Science takes up a whole block - no idea why, it just does so we have 10 lessons of that. Now I do 3 sciences so they're split up unevenly (Biology 3, Chemistry 4, Physics 3). Then we have Technology (you have to take one) and Maths sharing one block so each has 5 lessons. PE and English share a block, English has 6 lessons, PE has 4. And then the rest is just down to our options, and we get 5 for each.

Answered your question? ...oh and each lesson is an hour.

Each Lessons An Hour Long, And We Work On A Fortnightly Cycle

So English: 7 Lessons A Fortnight (It's Not Split Between Lang And Lit)
Maths: 6 Lessons A Fortnight
Science (Dual Award): 9 Lessons A Fortnight (3 For Each Science)
N.B. Triple Science Was An Option So It Would Be An Extra 5 Lessons A Fortnight (I Didn't Take It Though :p:)

Music: Again An Optional Subject (I Took It But Dropped It :p:) So 5 Lessons A Fortnight)
Languages: Again Was An Option So 5 Lessons A Fortnight
N.B. We Could Take An Extra Language After School (For Me French) Which Is 4 Lessons A Fortnight.

So If You Divide That By 2 (So For Just One Week)

English: 3.5 Hours A Week
Maths: 3 Hours A Week
Science (Dual): 4.5 Hours A Week (1.5 per Science)
Science (Triple): 7 Hours A Fortnight
Music, Languages: 2.5 Hours A Fortnight :p:

Hope That Answered Your Question A Bit :p:

When I did GCSEs we had a bit of a weird system of 35 minute lessons, but mostly they were doubles so an hour and ten.

Maths - 2h55
English - 2h55
Biology/Chemistry/Physics - 1h10 of each, then another 1h10 on rotation between the three.
Music - didn't take it, but people who did then I think 2h20?
Language - 2h10

My days the timetable was complicated back then. And no frees!

This will depend on the school or college. At my school, lessons were one hour in duration. Maths was allocated three lessons per week in both Year 10 and 11. English was taught as a combined course and most students were entered for both Language and Literature. We had three hours per week in Year 10 and 4 in Year 11. We also studied Double Award Science. Six periods were given in Year 10 and three in Year 11. This comprised of two for each 'subject' in the first year and one in the second year. Two periods per week in Year 10 and 3 in Year 11 were given for Languages and other option subjects (such as music).

maths 3 x 1 hr lessons
english lang AND/OR english lit 3 x 1hr Lessons
science OR physics, chemistry & biology 10 x 1 hr lessons per fornight so 3hrs for two of the sciences and 4 for the other
music 3 x 1hr lessons
foreign language 3 x 1hr lessons

The number of science and maths lessons at GCSE at my school has since gone up. I think it's 7 hours of maths per fortnight and it's 15 hours of science per fortnight if you're doing triple now.
