okay so i’ll just go based off how my school schedule is. 

Alright so period one through four is 45 mins or 40 mins idk one of those two. school starts at 7:25 for me and ends at 2:05 pm. and then period five is long period and its long period and its an hour and a half. and then last period when is period 6 is once again 40-45 mins. So my school is 6 periods a day but 7 periods in total (so confusing i know) so we go by a rotating schedule. its days A-G so A day we have period 1,2,3,4,5,6 and then B day we have 7,1,2,3,4,5 dropping 6 and then C day is 6,7,1,2,3,4 and so on and so then lets day B day out long period would be 4 instead of 5. Okay now for grades its 

90-100- A 

80-89- B

70-79- C

60-69- D

0-59- F  So fucking unfair i know its so dumb. A is the best i guess and F is basically the worst you could get. 

Where in the states is that a viable scheduling system?
When I was in high school we just has A day and B day, with different classes each day.
