    Okay so I'll admit it - I HATE my job. I work in a restaurant so its always very late hours and its so stressful I feel like I can't do anything beforehand. I need to push my chemistry grade up by two grades in a year and I feel I can't do this while working. However, my mother is being very strong about the fact that I stay in work so I can earn money to run my car and to save up for university.

    I've suggested that I start working as a tutor as it seems like it could be beneficial as I could revise whilst earning money and control my hours, but she seems to think that if it didn't go well, I could be sued. I want to know what else I could do that might be similar to this.

    I guess what I am asking is WHAT DO I DO?! On one hand I need these chemistry grades so I can do what I want to do in life, but on the other I need the money. HELP!

    1. you wouldnt get sued if you are competent.
    2. Give up your car.
    3. Grades come first.More important than money. You wont have to worry about going to uni if you dont get the grades.
    4. You can do a lot of hours in the summer.
