Two years Spanish GCSE - Time allocation

    I was just wondering if anyone running a two years GCSE Spanish course in their shcool (preferably a comprehensive school), would know what the required allocated time for teaching this subject is in a week?
    We get 134 minutes per week. Is this sufficient or more is required. We do Edexel in our school.

    Many thanks

    There's no 'required time' for any GCSE.

    ...although the number of guided learning hours recommended for a GCSE course is 180. Your 134 minutes a week would work out at fewer hours (about 155-160 hours depending on how many weeks they have in total over the two years) but it is a guide not a rule.
