    It's up to you. If you're like me, chances are you're gonna waste time at the weekend anyway, so why not earn some money in the process

    I've been working since I was 16 and believe it or not, I'm a lot more productive when I'm busy AF. Plus, the job you've mentioned isn't going to be that stressful, so you'll be okay, really. How many hours are we talking about here?

    If its less than 10 hours per week you will probably be fine. Sounds like you have a lot on but A level students also have jobs and manage fine so it's really whether you think you will be able to procrastinate less in your free time and actually do work!

    I have a Sunday job where I work 4 hours and it doesn't impact my studies. As long as you're not working over about 10 hours you should be fine. Plus it looks good on a CV in the future. Best of luck!

    tbh I doubt you will get a job while still in high school... as it is you might as well look for one, it won't ruin your studies to spend a few hours a week working, A level students manage fine and A levels are much tougher than GCSEs

    I'd get a job as when I had one (before I got into business full time) it made life some much easier to balance and control everything worked in time, I got free booze and food not to mention the 5 hooks ups I managed in that year thanks to the mastery of my colleagues in the world of dating and romance
