AS: How many free periods Watch
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.

At A2 I have 13 free periods a week - each 35 minutes. Have 9 periods of each subject a week.
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?
BUT we have to spend all of our morning frees studing in the private study room. Eugh!
And to make things worse, we have to do compulsory general studies (AS spread over 2 years), compulsory PE (no exam), compulsory games (no exam) and compulsory philosophy & ethics (no exam). When will these people let us live our lives and stop smothering us in cotton wool?!
At AS: 8 free periods of 50 minutes each over 2 weeks. In ridiculous places, never at the end of the day and rarely at the beginning.
At A2: 14 free periods of 50 minutes each over 2 weeks. (2 lessons less of German but purely by mistake and PE is no longer compulsory ) If I only did 3 A2's I'd have 25 free periods of 50 mins (that's basically what all my friends have!)
I do all 4 AS levels at A2
how do people feel about frees like you know the ones in the inbetween lessongs i like not having them and having shorter days just wondered how the people who have lots of frees feel
I like my frees, 'cause it means I can a) sleep in two days a week, and b) do my homework in them which frees up my non-school time. The ones in between lessons i.e. not at the beginning or the end of the day can be a bit of a pain, but it tends to mean more time to catch up with friends or teachers, or to prepare myself for the coming lesson.
