Hello.
When we are talking about the timing of the school day, should I say, e.g.

1. I have biology in the 6th period.
or
2. I have biology in 6th period.

An American would most likely say "in sixth period." I don't know if the term "period" referring to the divisions of the school day is used by other native speakers of English.

@Setanta,

i recall people saying it without the preposition.

"i have biology sixth period" or "i have sixth period biology"...

@Region Philbis,
Yes, I've heard that, too. The significant thing for this question is that I've never heard anyone use the definite article.
