    The law says you have to be 16 to work officially ... so you will need to find a job through contacts who will pay with cash. You can't physically be paid to your bank so you'll need a local, unofficial job, maybe help out in a corner shop and babysit?

    Some restaurants take on waitresses from 14. But mainly not the chain ones.
    Other than that you are limited to a paper round or babysitting, gardening etc.

    Well yeah, you can be paid into your bank account. How do you think paper rounds pay you for starters. You might not have a national inusrance number etc, but you can still be paid into a bank account.

    Selling cookies, biscuits, drinks etc.. omdz I was making profit in year 9 and 10

    Buy 10 cookies for 2 pound, sell each of them for 50p easy 5 quid ... cookies made me the most money.

    A whole packet of custard creams cost like 45p, but people often buy from you for like £1

    As for marketing techniques, 9 times out of 10 the fat kids will defo buy something

    When I was 14 I was working at a local farm/stable yard- mucking out, helping with the animal- feeds, bringing in horses etc... Obviously it's a bit more niche but if you're up for it I was on like £5 an hour which is more than min. wage!

    Probably not the best idea to get a job now because as soon the revision and stress will kick in and you just won't have time for it.I suggest that you get a job after your exams as you will have a variety of places that will take you on as you would have finished your GCSE's.
