    supermarkets,whsmith,macdonalds, clothes stores, small restaurants/cafe's or babysitting i guess , problem is is that i'm not even in the country for half of the summer ,so seeing if where my mum works will give me a job for a couple of weeks is my only option other than babysitting

    Physics A-Level is hard but it's not as hard as people make it out to be IMO. The same for chemistry. Just put in the work and try to enjoy it (hopefully you enjoy it already ), and it should be fine. :yep:
