    Currently I’m doing Chemistry, Biology and Psychology 🎀 They are hard subjects and take up a lot of my time so I’m unsure whether to work or not. I am not desperate for money but I would like to have savings as a security but also so I could afford my driving lessons when I hit 17 as I don’t want to rely on my parents 💛👸🏽 A lot of teachers say don’t get a job when they give us advice but I’m not sure. Currently, I’m doing AS and I have not taken part in any enrichment activities (which I want to change this half term) because I find myself stressing out for not revising 💗 so I thought if I get a job and join clubs at my college I’ll have something to say in my UCAS form 😂😂 any advice 💋

    It depends how clever you are an how well you can cope.

    Money is useful for revision materials, experience and savings.
    Its all a bit pointless if you flunk your exams.
    Maybe do 1 day a week or Christmas or temp and then quit when it gets closer to exams?

    Your grades are the most important, just be sensible.
