    I had this weekend job 9-6 sat n sunday up until october. Theyre opening again soon and are asking me to come back.

    Teachers are always telling us to not have jobs if we are doing lots of highers, but then thats cus there are a lot of struggling kids at this school.

    I've just done prelims and got 83%,89%,93%,95%,95%. Just from standard revision over christmas. Apart from History and Maths which have a little bit left to cover they were full prelims as we have covered all the content. It's just assignments I'm doing now.

    Is it a bad idea to get a job?

    Well I'm doing advanced highers and work every Sunday. It all depends how you organise your work. Saturday and Sunday might be a bit much though.

    I worked 3/4 shifts a week throughout fifth year and managed to get AAAAB. If you put enough effort in I'm sure you'll be fine balancing them.
