    I'm starting my a levels in September and I'm intending on doing maths, further maths, chemistry and computer science. I also have a part time job at the moment which I want to continue with during the school year because I enjoy it and for the experience.

    Would all this be manageable considering I am taking quite "hard" a levels?

    It entirely depends on you as a person, your determination and capabilities. If you can do it then great. Also depends on the amount of time your part time job takes away, bearing in mind a levels need a lot more study time than GCSE's.

    Good luck though!

    As long as you don't slack and are determined you will do well. Remember if you don't understand something, ask yourself what part do you not understand and why you don't understand this. You will manage don't worry, have a positive mindset and be organised. All the best starting from september.

    Providing you can do the subjects, your biggest worry will be finding out if your course hours clash with work hours. I was able to do the equivalent of 4 A Levels and work part time comfortably. I found doing 3 A Levels and working part time to be a breeze.

    Providing you don't let work impact your studies you'll be fine.

    It is a zero hour contract so hopefully won't take too much time away during the school year but thanks!
