Does anyone else on here have block scheduling? It's when you have only four classes and their each about 80-90 minutes, I hate it.

I was on block schedule at my old school. So fucking boring. But I transferred schools and I have 6 classes a day now, which is about perfect class length and homework wise.

Oh shit! That sounds brutal. I mean, my days are about 4 hours long, but its not like, all lectures. I only do one subject. Basically, it'll either be a practical in the morning and a lecture in the afternoon (lectures last about an hour and a half) or a lecture for an hour and a half followed by a group discussion.

I'd hate to have four lectures in a row though. That'd kill me.

Can't beat 40-45 min class lenghts. Enough to learn what you have too, and not listen to the bullshit when your done.

I got 6 hour days, 6 periods of 50 minutes, and the rest made up by break and lunch. I average around 2 free periods a day (where you study or most of the time just piss about).

That is the benifits of Sixth Form, you only do subjects you enjoy.

Also I've almost finished my first song for Music Tech, so when I mix it down I'll post it here for you scallywags.

My schedule is similar, we have 7 classes a day, 43 mins long with 3 min breaks in between. Pretty simple, but can get boring.

4 blocks. About 45 minutes long. But then we have lunch and recess(Basicaly sit outside for 5 minutes) and then PE. Then we do other stuff depending on the day. It's gay

i have block scheduling and i love it. sure classes are longer but you get more done, and you only have the class for half a year which is pretty sweet. my friend has regular scheduling and shes got like, ten tests to study for while i only have 3 or 4. so its pretty awesome.

Same, but my days are kind of evened out. I have only 8 classes this semester, 4 on one day(ABCD), 4 on the other(EFGH), then the first four(ABCD), etc.

But what's cool is I have 2 acedemic classes like Chemistry or Math and 2 elective classes like TV and photo in one day. 4 acedemic classes and 4 all balanced out for a 2 day span, then we start it again but in a different order of periods.

I have 6 classes a day and then block days (Wednesday and Thursday) have 3... It's not really that bad at all... We just do fun stuff for a whole period or watch movies or group classwork or something. Pretty easy
