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.
oh yeh my periods last one hour. And two of my frees are afta lunch so basically I'll be going home. So that means I only have one free in between lessons in a week. :eek:

8 frees every week. Each one is 40 minutes. I have two frees after dinner on Fridays so I get to go home early on Friday afternoons, yay!

At AS I had 8 free periods a week - each 35 minutes. Had 8 periods of each subject a week.

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?
My timetable is like that but i don't really get any free time. The 5hrs where i don't have a subject i am either doing games, general studies or young enterprise.

I get 3 hours on Monday, 2 hours on Tuesday, 3 and a half on Wednesday, 3 and a half on Thursday and the whole of friday off (9am-6pm days) . I like my timetable at the moment but it's "subject to change" as the teachers at college say. We will probably be given the change of timetable on Monday (oh happy days :rolleyes: ) but I should still get my fridays off acording to one of the co-heads .

I've only got 2 free periods now that they fixed our timetables, but I count Study period as a free because I sign out to the art department and just go home, lol! So that makes it about 4 hours a week

I have 19 x 1 hour free periods, but 5 of those are the 4.15-5.15 slots which I finish my lessons before anyway, so technically it's 14

I have 15 free periods a fortnight of 50 minutes each, which works out that I'm off timetable a quarter of the time. Thankfully none of these are at the start of the day because, unlike all your sensible schools, mine insists that we go in at 8.35 every morning for registration, regardless of whether we've got lessons. So you could end up having nothing until last period (2.40pm) but being in all day anyway! Plus, we can only leave after lunch. I've got 3 days when I can leave early - one at 2.40pm and two at 1.45pm.

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 :s: and PE is no longer compulsory ) If I only did 3 A2's I'd have 25 free periods of 50 mins :eek: (that's basically what all my friends have!)

I do all 4 AS levels at A2
do you go to a school in caterham? I know someone who told me they got their german messed up and had 50 minutue free periods...

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.

yer i like the being able to sleep in but lots of my friends who do 9:15 - 5:15 with a 2 hr free would rather do 9:15- 3:15 without the fee or go in to hours later
