    hey guys i've got a job for the summer and i am wondering if i just worked saturdays and studied hard in the weekdays if i'd still be able to get A's at A2?

    I know im going to have to resit maths next year so thats extra work. Any success stories or tips?

    Yeah, you can if it's just weekends - I don't really do much school work during weekends and am doing fine.

    When I was doing my A Levels I had a job where I worked about 12 hours a week on Saturdays and Wednesdays and it was absolutely fine. Just make sure you organise your time to give you a structure where you can work, study and relax

    I'm currently in AS year and the place where i work is forcing me and some others to either go on to bigger contracts or leave (it's more complicated that that, but that's the long and short of it). I'm going to go onto a bigger contract as i need the money so i plan on working about 17/18 hours per week during A2 and i'm not worried about it at all (i also want all As), so you should be fine
