    The recommendation I got was not to work more than nine hours a week, and to limit them as much as possible to the weekend. Since your shifts are kind of back to back, it might get really stressful, but then you've always got the weekend afterwards to sort yourself out! It depends on what you're used to, and also if you have free periods during your school day. It's difficult, but doable.

    I think that's fine as long as you keep yourself dedicated to your A Levels. Right now I'm working and on an access course, but I'm 21 and am used to working up to 50 hours so it's easier to manage I guess but even I'm struggling sometimes to keep up with both. So just make sure you watch yourself and don't let yourself get behind or it'll pile up very very quickly.

    Those hours sound fine. They should be perfectly doable alongside a-levels.

    I think you will find its perfectly doable as long as you are organised. Its not as difficult as you make out.
    I worked 15-20 hours during my a-levels.
