my eldest son studying medicine at uni was telling me since starting the 2nd year, the most he's ever had is 4 lectures in a day with mostly free afternoons. Whereas youngest son has 9-5 5 days a week. It varies between sixth forms usually the number of as/a2 levels done e.g. at their high school, certain subjects used to be grouped together with free afternoons for those doing 3A2's.
4 lectures a day?? My son has 2 a week, but he is doing English Lit, and everyone knows arts students are the milch cows providing the money for the ones doing science and medicine. We have to pay the full Â£3000+ and no bursary as well.
