    I turned 16 couple months ago and I'm applying for a part time job. On the form, it asks 'Are you a student? Yes/No'. I'm going to be going to sixth form in September so does that mean I am a student?

    It's difficult to decide if you are or aren't a student. It's summer holidays so you technically aren't a student. But at the same time you'll be going into education again in September.

    Honestly it's probably not that important. You could contact the company to get their opinion but you could put yes or no. yes you will be a student in September but no you aren't at the moment. I don't really see why they need to know if you're a student, beyond how it may affect your working hours and things related to age.

    Put whatever you feel is more appropriate, you can clear up any misunderstandings later if needed. But it's not that important and shouldn't have any impact on you getting the job.

    You are a student. It should be self evident from the form or you can state it explicitly that you are about to become a sixth former.
    Your age will alert them you will be in education or an apprenticeship anyway.
