    I've taken four essay subjects for A-Level:
    History, German, Philosophy and Ethics and English Literature.
    I also have a new job which keeps me busy for, on average, 14 hours a week.
    Before school started I decided to try and make notes on my lessons every night but I'm finding it a struggle to even turn in homework on time.
    I'm waking up every day at 5am to do homework before going to school at 8am-4pm when I start work until about 9/10/11.
    I normally work every weekend and almost every night, I am very active in loads of different clubs which I don't want to stop doing and I get at least 4 hours of homework per subject per week.
    I don't want to give up any of my subjects or my job but I need some advice on how to juggle everything. Anything anyone can put forward would massively help. Thanks!

    As you've mentioned earlier in your post, you're clearly struggling. The key to solving this problem would be great time management, but it seems as though you've hardly any time in your day to amend due to your hectic schedule.

    Perhaps limit your job to school holidays? You wouldn't want to regret jeopardizing your grades because you took on more than you can carry.
