Does anyone do the Edexcel full course over 3 years, with 1 lesson per week?

    In answer to the OP, it should be relatively easy to do in 3 years at 1 hour per week.
    I'm not saying it's a good way to do it, but it's definitely do-able.
    The course has two units. Each unit has four sections. Each section has eleven topics. Each topic can be done in one lesson. That's 2 x 4 x 11 = 88 lessons.
    Each school year has 39 weeks. Minus 6 weeks for the half-term you'll miss after the exam in Year 11, 3 x 39 = 117 - 6 = 111.
    111 - 88 = 23, so that gives you 23 'spare' lessons to miss for PSCHE, INSET days, etc.

  2. Hi,

    We do, and it works. Start year 9, 1hour a week, currently sit religion and society in year 10, and religion and life year 11. It's do-able, but rather rushed. Will change 2014 with the current year 9's sitting two papers.
