I've been working night shifts at Sainbury's now and i hate it since i can't focus on my studies. I basically did a paid induction at 6.38 per hour for 14 hours and Worked two night shifts at 8 pounds for 20 hours.
If i discuss my problem with the HR department do i still get paid and can quit gracefully ?

Yeah you should do, just don't quit and not discuss it with someone.

I use to work for Sainsbury's doing 2 10h nightshifts in my 2nd year in uni, it totally ****ed up my grades for that year and also I had to go to some exams right after a nightshift... Not to mention that the job is crap itself...

well. concentrating on your studies is one thing, and making money is another.
if you quit , what are the consequences ? would you be able to live with your savings for the whole duration of your course, and after?
your health is a priority, but if you need the money then don't quit, although i strongly believe that you should maintain a timetable so that your studies are unaffected and that you sleep at proper times.

My brother worked in Tesco, and he was supposed to give two weeks' notice. In fact he just walked out. They still paid him for the work he had done, but obviously he couldn't get a reference after doing that.
Given how little time you've been there, I don't think you have much to lose in reference terms by quitting. Talk to your boss first though, and find out if they would be willing to change your shifts - but because you're so new, I don't think that's gonna happen.
If you find yourself short of cash while you look for a better job, would your parents help?
