    I've been working at a local café in my town for about a month and I will be for the rest of the summer. Do I carry it on after the holiday is over? I'll be starting my A Levels and i know that I'm going to stress myself out enough about them. Do you think its worth balancing that with a Saturday job for the sake of £20.50 a week? Plus I bought a season ticket for Plymouth Argyle FC for the next season so if i carry on with the job i've wasted £100.
    I can't say I've had the most fun with this job and i have a pang of nerves every morning before i start ( plus my boss is ridiculously intimidating and has somehow managed to turn a café political).
    Also, I feel so guilty just leaving, they lost another employe a few weeks ago and it totally threw everything of for everyone.
    Does anybody have any advice? I'm REALLY socially awkward so even the thought of handing in my notice is enough to give me cold sweats.

    Just carry on with it during A levels, you never know when that money will come in handy. I had a part time job as a waiter in a pub during my A levels and a part time job during uni for a bit. Earning money is never bad. Just keep your head down and do your job and you'll be fine!

    For the sake of £20, not for me. But if you have little money then it makes a difference. I managed to balance 16 hours a week at Tesco on college nights. Reason being I worked hard in my free periods, and during first year I had 8 free periods. That was 12 hours a week for independent study and even more once I dropped a subject in second year. I hardly revised at home apart from exam season.

    I agree.
    And it looks good on your cv.
    The one shift a week will be manageable alongside your a-levels.
