    I'm applying for various retail part time jobs and I needed to ask a couple of questions.

    Firstly is it okay to put my a level predictions of maths,further maths and physics although it has no relevance to the actual job. Also if you know of any firms or job titles which maths a level would be helpful please let me know (I can't think of any lol ).

    Also another problem is that I worked at a restaurant in 2011 for work experience in year 10 but do not have any proof of it... and the place has now closed down . So my question is should I still put it on my CV as I have no proof?

    Thanks for reading hope you can help.

    Id still put the restaurant work experience down. You still gained experience at the place at the end of the place, even though the place has since closed down. And that bit of experience may swing it so you get the job. It isnt your fault that the place has since closed. And if you are apply for jobs at shops in your area anyway (im assuming the restaurant that closed down was in your area) then its likely they would have heard of the restaurant and know its closed down anyway.

    Oh right.
    Id still put it down though, as like i said before, at least its some sort of experience and it may help to sway things in your favour. And if anyone asks, you would just have to explain that the place has since closed. You wont be the first person that that has happened to. Im sure they could search for the place on google if they didnt believe you anyway.
    Is there anyone at all from the restaurant (even if its not a supervisor/manager) who you could get to give you a reference.

    I'm going to try and call them :P but I'm not getting my hopes up.

    Also what do you think about me using my a levels and not being relevant?

    Id still put your a-levels on there and that you are currently completing them and probably your predicted grades. It wont hurt. It might even do a bit of good.
    And especially if you dont have much to put on your CV (i dont know how much or little you have on there) it might fill it out a bit.
