    I would say 18+, unless you are in need of an income.

    The second question, Ehm..

    Studies and a job at the same time? Yes, it's possible.

    I've always had a job since i was 15. A good job to get is a holiday job, so you can concentrate on your studies during term time. During sixth form i had a saturday job as well. Honestly, it shouldnt impact on your studies. Although you should be revising a lot it shouldnt be so extreme that you cant take a few hours out of your week to earn some money. For me it was good as it made me more organised and procrastinate less as well. Most people i knew had a job at school or in the holidays.

    I have a job and I'm doing my GCSE's. I feel like 14/15 is a good age to get a small job, it can teach you about the concepts of work and can act as a stress-reliever from school

    Stress-reliever.

    Depends where you work.

    I work in a busy cafe/restaurant/shop (it's kinda all morphed into one) and although yes in itself it can be stressful & you need to be quick etc, it's a break away from school as you're thinking about other things, releasing your stress in other ways, so I think no matter what job it is it's a stress-reliever, to be honest I think busy jobs moreso because you aren't sat around to think about all the revision you're not doing

    Depends on your circumstances. I'd suggest as early as possible, for experience, if nothing else. Yes, many people do both i.e. work and study. Again, it all depends on your own personal situation really.
