    Taking 3 Sciences and Maths . Should I accept the job and work 8 Hours a week?
    Only if you feel it would take up preparation time. I stopped working during my A Levels as I felt it would reduce my preparation time, especially on the weekend when I did most of my work. Only you know if you can manage both effectively. Revise smart, not hard and as long as you are personally content with what you accomplish that is all that matters.

    All the best.

    that could very easily be split down into 2 4 hour shifts, which I did for the last years so you should be fine, just make sure you get at least 1 day off per week!

    It really depends

    on my course I worked 10 hours a week and that was fine I got 35/36 in my marks scheme but I don't socialise much so I basically was either at college , working or writing course work.

    However if you have to socialise a lot you may not have time it's all about planning in the time.

    I would say yes but it depends on you priorities money or social life.



    See I struggle to write my distinction level coursework at night and because I didn't socialise I did a lot of evening/night shifts and spent my free days doing my course work.

    4 is standard for an A grade student.

    Torbay girls grammar and torbay boys grammar expect A level students to do 2 languages and then 3 other A levels.

    Well, if that's something you really would like to do, it definitely will not take up too much time. You have way more free time than people might make you believe when it comes to A Levels.

    I'm about to enter year 13 and i currently have a 12 hour job! Personally I think that it wouldn't be a problem as long as you aren't working both days of the weekend. I split my hours up into Sunday, Thursday and Friday so that I'm only working 8, 3 and 2 hours each shift.

    Honestly, if you're getting a job that you enjoy then it can be great stress relief and give you something to do other than being at home stressing about school!
