    Hi Guys,

    I am really after some serious valuable advice. I am currently taking my A Levels in year 13 and at the same time I am employed as a retail assistant at a supermarket.

    I am very unsure whether I should continue working at the supermarket on both days of the weekend whilst studying during the week. I feel as though the the employment is a distraction towards my eductaion however I do not want to leave considering I have financial conmitments to fund.

    I am confused whether I should continue with the employment. I have tried to ask to drop one of my shifts to limit it to only one day a week, however have been refused.

    Please guide me in what I should do?
