Hi, i was just wondering if it would be ok working weekends while completing 3 A levels. Or would it put to much stress on my timetable? Anyone who has done this?
that should be no problem, i worked throughout my alevels on friday evenings and saturdays all day and i done fairly well. In fact most ppl did work during their alvels and had no problem, If you have to work long hours on saturday and sunday it might be a bit of a hassle.
Ive just started my A levels and am looking around for saturday work. I think it should be ok as long as you keep ontop of all your coursework as falling behind can become very stressful.
Well, Im struggling finding a job, as i have no experiance.
My college recommended working no longer than 8 hours per week. I used to work 7.5 hours on a Saturday in a pharmacy.
Kunster1337, why don't you try:
Try not to be too picky, as like you said, it can be difficult to find work when you're 16-18.
when i was doing my A levels i worked 5-10 hours at the weekend. it was pretty easy to keep up with my work as long as i did it in free periods or in the evenings after school. most people i know also worked at least the same as me.
I worked about 16-20 hours a week during AS levels and coped.
A-levels I worked about the same but quit in the Feb before exams started. I am glad I did.
i worked roughly 16 hours a week all through college and it was ok although during my final exams i did book a week off and then got another week off through my car crash so i had more time to revise. I remember when i first started college my boss at the time didnt believe me (that college had started) and i was working nearly full time plus college for about two weeks until he finally believed that different peoples courses started at different times. (He just presumed because one person hadnt started all the college students wouldnt have started) I was really tired but it wasnt impossible; i found that you find time to do everything.
i worked 7.5 hours on a saturday while doing 5 alevels. In the end i got AAAAC. It worked out fine!
it should be fine i worked in a supermarket and if i was getting hassled with coursework they understood as they employed a lot of students so they let me swap shifts or take time off but it actually motivated me not to leave my work till the weekend as i worked weekends and 3 hours on a monday night.
Call Centre work is deathly dull but well paid, shift work, and limited hours. I did it from November last year until April this year, through three A levels and various extracurriculars, and it was only in the last 'burst' before my A levels that I dropped everything, including work.
The pay where I was, was about seven quid an hour, well over minimum wage. You sit on your arse all day and there's the ability to do homework while you're there. Furthermore, Call Centres constantly have changeover - it's a disgusting job to do, really boring, it's horrible, BUT, it meets the requirements you have as an A-level student. Try your local newspaper Job supplement and any local temp agencies. Don't be fobbed off by the 'under eighteen, no service' crap - try your local branch of Kellys; I've done loads of temp work for them, before I got my permanent job where I am now and they were always good.
