    I have recently received an email from B & Q telling me I can have a telephone interview about the job, however i'm not sure about getting a job.

    I did well at AS achieving A grades, but the only job I had throughout this was a newspaper delivery round (which i still do), I am worried that if I take up this job I won't have as much time for revision as I did for AS.

    Has anyone else been in this situation, any response is appreciated.

    I worked throughout second year and it was fine. However, only do one day a week as it can have an impact on your work when you're revising for exams. Also, don't work saturdays and sundays - I did, and it was terrible

    I know people who did part time jobs whilst they were doing A2
    Some of them did amazingly well still and others failed

    I think it's up to you if you can handle it
    Personally, I needed the time so I didn't get a job

    I worked weekends until April when I thought it best to just focus on exams. Depends on your time management skills.

    It certainly can be done.
    I did it, and i know others that did as well.
    As long as you manage your time then you should be fine.
    There is always the possibility of dropping your hours around exam time if you need to.
