    Hi everyone,

    I'm at sixth form at the moment in my first year doing maths, economics, French and psychology.

    I've recently started working in shop for 8 hours over the weekend (11am-3pm on Saturdays and Sundays) and I was wondering if you guys think this is a lot or if it's a manageable amount.

    I don't want it to affect my A levels but I also need the money and genuinely enjoy the work. What do you think?

    Hmmm, I don't think it is too much no, especially if you enjoy the work it shouldn't be adding too much stress to you And money is a bonus, just make sure that you do have some time to study (which it seems you do in the afternoon), 8 hours a week really isn't that much, it is an hour a day out of your time basically If you do find it starting to seriously affect your grades and mental health, then maybe for you it is too much. But if you are coping okay then I can't see it as a drastically unmanagable amount of hours

    No, 8 hours is not too much.

    Definitely not. I used to work 8 hours a week whilst at uni and it didn't give me any stress at all.
