Not crazy at all if you think you will benefit from it! Make a list of your monthly outgoings and see if you will be able to afford to quit, or maybe think about working part time instead!!

Thank you! I'm glad I don't sound absolutely ludicrous!

Crazy? That is what many other people do. I would consider A level much more important than having a job so even I would quit my job to do more A level revision.

If you are going to uni then you should get some work expereince there anyways.

Quite the contrary - it shows a commendable commitment and dedication to your longterm goal.

The question is whether or not you can afford to do it?

The problem is, this isn't just a job that 16-18 year olds work whilst they're studying at college and are living at home with parents. This is my full time job and career. I'm trying to work out whether it's worth having that gap on my CV and if I can financially afford to have such a long break from work! :/

Ok, so I'm still considering actually quitting my job and being unemployed for a few months (or at least work part time in retail or something) so I can concentrate/continue self-teaching the two A-levels I am doing as a mature student. I've already booked my A2 exams and am worried about not having enough time to study and do well. Am I just being crazy for having chosen to self-teach in the first place?

So, I'm spending the weekend studying but am dreading work next week as I feel like I've got so much revising to do in order to be prepared for the two A-levels I am sitting in the summer as a mature private candidate.

I'm actually on the verge of quitting my job just to concentrate on these A-levels Am I absolutely crazy for doing this?
