Does anyone else have a timetable where they just get 2 lessons a day? This is how it works in my school. The normal school timetable has 5 periods, and for sixth form that gets split into 2 sessions, one of 3 lessons and one of 2, and every week you get a 3 lesson session and a 2 lesson session in each subject. But looking on here everyone else seems to have a normal timetable, does anyone else have one like mine?

I am taking 3 aslevels and 1 GCSE re-sit in college. Out of 30 - 50min periods I have 17 lessons which will go down to 15 in January. I also have either 1 general studies lecture or a tutorial every week.

I have 4 hours between lessons on monday!
Start college at 11 on tuesday
Start college at 11 on wednesday (which will eventually be a day off after I re-take GCSE maths)
All day thursday
2 hours mid day on friday.

Not a bad timetable methinks!

I am from the states we do not have free periods. At my high school if a pupsil needed more help they got one period a day it was called resource support which ment that student could only have 5 real courses a day. These periods were 50 mintues each. That would be like 5 free periods 250mins a week.

I've got 6 frees, of 1 hour each. Got most of Tuesday morning off, but a full day on Friday, which is a bit of a pain.

We've got some weird timetable system that spreads over a fortnight with weeks A and B and I have 12 every 2 weeks...
Also I know a guy in our year who as just 1 lesson on one day (we have 6 periods a day) and he's free for the whole morning of that day!

Not really on topic, but OMG you people have short lessons!

At AS our lessons were 1 and a quarter hours long, with 4 lessons a week per subject so I had 11 and a quarter hours free.

At A2 lessons went up to an an hour and 35 mins but there were only 3 lessons per subject per week. but I can't be bothered to do the maths now. (Maths wasn't one of my subjects). But I had 12 out of 20 lessons in total in class.

I'm confused now!

My timetable is split so that you get one double lesson in every subject you take. So I have an afternoon of art one day, and an afternoon of maths the other day. I have no free periods at the moment, but I'm going to drop my subjects down to four, because at the moment theres no way I can do 20 hrs hw time!

im taking 5 subjects, and i only have like 3 free periods ><
i know some people that even have 2 days off. i thought going to college meant more free days off and more sleep.
there are 2 days when i get to leave at 2:30 and 1 day when i get to sleep later and come in for lessons at 10:45.
my lessons are an hour and a half.

I have seven. But two are for enrichment, and I'm going to use another few for squash, so they're not all really 'free' frees.

14, of 50 minutes each. Five of them are supposed to be lunchtimes, but it's quite complicated because this year we have alternating lunchtimes.

I've cut 4 out for my out-of-school Latin, and 2 more for library duty, and will probably shift another one for a singing lesson, but it's still a nice amount. I'm only doing 3 A levels (and AS GS) in school, which is why I have so many. Some of my friends have none!

Maybe I should have done the options differently!! I wasn't expecting so many people with more than 6 free hours a week!!

I had 5 50 min frees a week, plus two more frees allocated for completing work for distance learning law.

This year I have 8 frees.

Well technically I have 3 frees. But also we may be a lesson outside school hours frm 3.25-4.25 so they can count as frees so including them it would be 7 but excluding them I've only got 3 . And i have loads of double lessons (lasts 2 hours). I'm taking 5 As, 4 are 5 hours a week and Critical Thinkin is 2 and I also have PSHE.
