    Im in my final year of college which is a2 and doing 3 linear alevels, i want to get AAA at least and if possible AA*A and apply to a great uni after i get my results at the start of my gap year. I recently got a job offer for 2 weeks in a retail shop that would start during the christmas holidays in december and end when they finish then i would leave and go back to normal also i dont have much money now. The, job pays £9 an hour roughly and i was wondering if i should use the 2 weeks christmas holiday to revise and study for alevels or take the two week job. I will be qorking hard in college from september anyway. Thoughts?

    If you think you are able to cope then go for it. But make sure you revise twice as hard after December and work hard.

    Personally I'd accept the job. It'll give you a break from studying whilst gaining some experience which will benefit your cv as well as give you some extra cash for Christmas

    Considering you're expecting to get onto the higher end of A level results, a bit of revision time can be sacrificed in exchange for two weeks worth of a) money earning and b) CV enhancing. I'd definitely take the job.
