Hi, I have recently been offered a job in the produce department at tesco, with my induction days to start next week. The job is 13 hours per week, and as a 17 year old sixth form student, I'm starting to worry about how much time I can spare per week for revision without burning myself out. Although the days I will be working are helpful with my studies (Tuesday evening, Friday evening and Sunday evening), I still want to maintain a balance between my social life, work and school work. Would appreciate any advice.

Hiya, first of all congratulations! I currently work 5 days a week as a private tutor (so ~12 hours) and am in Year 13. I'd say it's certainly possible, and as long as you schedule your revision accordingly, I don't see how it can cause any problems (aside from you having less free time). Good luck!

Yeah, I second that, congratulations! You're going to gain fantastic work experience and it will look good on your CV/personal statement too. Having this job will help you have a balanced life. Sometimes when we have less time to do things we get more things done and we organize our time better. It doesn't sound like you have so many hours though, and lots of sixth formers have weekend jobs and they still get superb a level results. You can always ask for less hours and if the job doesn't work out you can always quit. Go for it and good luck!
