    So my 7 A-Level exams are from 14th of June to 22nd of June.
    However is it worth getting a new job so close to exams for holiday/summer/uni money? I know I should be revising but just want advice.

    No. Concentrate on your A levels. Work afterwards.

    I started working in January for 21 hours a week and I'm starting to regret it now because of how much it takes away from my revision time. Get a job after your exams. Not before!

    If you think you can cope with a job, or you get a job that allows you to lower your hours around exam time, then go for it.
    If you arent sure if you can cope, then wait until afterwards.
    I must say that as long as you balance your time, you should be fine. I worked all the way through 6th form and college and it worked out fine.

    That is a lot of hours to be doing alongside your a-levels though. Most people dont do that many.
    Is there any chance of reducing your hours? (at least running up to exams or something)

    Depends if you need high grades and wherebaouts you are in getting them . Tbh id focus on exams, but if you need money irgently then maybe.
    Why not line a job up for a week after then end of your exams?

    Yeah currently predicted 3A*s in Maths, Chemistry and Economics and I need A*AA to get into Bristol. I know A*s are still going to need work to achieve.

    The money would just be needed as spending money for a holiday with friends the week after exams finish, so I guess it's important but not extremely urgent. Really annoying how I spent months applying for jobs and they've only just got back to me close to exams

    Tbh id just work hard on exams. These affect many years whereas a holiday is much more short term. Only if you feel you have it under control. Dont overreach.
