    my mum really wants me to find a part time job to help out financially cos we're poor and my older siblings don't help, but I go to sixth form and have just started year 12. I'm aiming for high grades that will get me somewhere and having a job is gonna conflict with school and the workload. I'd like a job but realistically I need all my attention on my work right from the beginning but my mum doesn't understand, she expects me to get books from the library for school (even though I can't as it's a new course) and said that if I need any school supplies I have to get a job and even refuses to pay for food and clothes if I don't get a job soon. Idk what to do anymore

    u r in a really hard situation and i csnt even imagine to have to go through that
    but for a job i would suggest working in like a coffee shop or a bakery, they open really early - like 5:30/6 am and even if you work an 8 hour shift, youll finish by 1:30pm or earlier, which is the time most students wake up or start working anyway and ull have the rest of the day to study

    i just started yr 12 too and thats what i do- i work the morning shift at greggs

    hope this helps

    For paper pen’s note books pencils stuff like that you could always use the College shop most places have one and everything is quite cheep. Books are expensive but lots of lecturers put notes online you could always apply for a hardship fund this will hopefully cover your books.

    That doesn’t sound great. Have you thought about tutoring at all. It depends on your subjects a bit but it’s often not so many hours and reasonable pay but also forces you to go over topics that you should be confident with - which can make you notice some weaknesses which is useful for your own revision of simpler concepts.

    There's no reason you can't work and get good grades if you manage your time well.
