    Does anyone teach year 12 and 13 at the same time. Our school is moving to 6 sessions a week with 5 of these being joint lessons with both year 12 and 13. We are struggling to map out a rota for the content due to topics needing to know year 12 content to be taught before they can do it. Does anyone else do anything similar and how does it work? Me and my HOD are currently banging our heads against the wall!!!

    Wait you mean year 12 and year 13 in the same class!? How does that work?? And further that's a bit **** isn't it?

    Or do you mean separate classes on at the same time? In which case i don't see the problem as there's separate topics for Year 12 and separate for year 13?

    I think I remember a discussion about this long ago. I recommend you join the Biotutor forum where there is lots of knowledge and experience on tap. Go to www.biology4all.com to find out more.

    I did last year, it wasn’t possible to teach together, all lessons where students working on activities and me running round like mad trying to find the misconceptions etc. The grades where not as good as I expected and I’m sure this played a role.

    Yes - don't even try and teach yr12 and 13 at the same time. Someone somewhere is trying to save money and this is a step too too far
