    AS & A2 both 9 hours a fortnight.
    However, would prefer 10 hours.
  2. All subjects apart from maths
    As = 4 hrs a week
    A2 = 5 hrs a week
    Maths get 5 at AS and 6 at A2, no idea why!

    9 per fortnight, AS and A2
  4. AS have 6 x 50 mins a week
    A2 5 x 50 mins a week.
    As AS exams start early and they can sit their first units in Jan we felt they needed more time.
    A2 students start their courses in June following their AS exams so they do have plenty of time to get through the course.
    Some subjects offer additional lessons at A2 if staff are able to do and feel it's necessary.
