    Hi,
    I currently work in Primark for 8 hours/week but I've been asked to go for an interview at H&M tomorrow, also for 8 hours/week.

    However, I might be going to uni in autumn. The reason I say I might is because i'm sure I've messed one exam up which means that I won't meet my offer, and it's quite a competitive course, but maybe they might let me in with one grade dropped, I'm unsure...

    I'd much prefer working at H&M. I hate my job at Primark but i'm used to it and I like a few people there. But if I started at H&M, I might have to leave in like 2 and a half months... however I might not as I mightn't get into uni, if you can see my problem?!

    Any advice? I know this seems like a pretty trivial problem but i'm kind of stressing about it.

    Go for the interview - all these retail outlets are used to a fast turnover of staff. If you don't get into uni, at least you will be doing a better job until you apply again the next year. (I work with a girl whose daughter quit her job after 3 days - so even 2.5 months would be better)
