    I have a plan to work during the weekend once every two weeks from 11-3. Is it worth it, will this impede on exam results?? I will make 7 an hour. I currently cannot get much books or anything for that matter and may or may not receive bursary money. I take Psychology , Chemistry , Maths and Biology. I am not very intelligent but did manage to get these subjects through ok GCSE results. I want to get four A* of course. will this be possible with a job and revision planner starting now if i am kind dumb lel

    During AS it's a good idea to work and it's usually manageable too.
    Since you're only doing 4 hours a day it's unlikely to affect your studies even at A2, and a bit of extra cash will help you in the long run.
    I wouldn't worry too much

    You'll be fine. I worked 2-3 shifts a week throughout my A Levels and I survived just fine.

    Just about ok

    I agree.
    I know of a lot of people (including myself) who worked quite a few shifts during a-levels and we worked out fine.
