    If i work 6 hours each on saturday and sunday and continue to work hard, will i get AAA or is it impossible?
    As stated Quality/ Quantity - can you maintain quality study having just completed a 6 hour work shift? Or are you tired on Monday having worked and not rested all weekend.

    You don't mention what work you do for six hours, is it related in anyway to your career choice / A level Options or is it just bar work/flipping burgers/serving/skill-less employment that won't add any real value to you in the long term, it's just cash in your pocket for now?

    clearly you are not studying in that time or resting that's for sure

    For 3 A levels it's a minimum of in/out study of 36 hrs so that's your week taken care of Plus You need some time for yourself.

    I guess the quick answer is Yes, you could Manage it but if I'm honest if you were my son/daughter I would deter you from working those two days. The only thing that would convince me otherwise would be if the work was related. If it's not related then it's just about money and for now, the A levels are more important imo than a few quid.

    I guess so, the thing is my mum is struggling with money at the moment so by me working, I am able to take a bit of stress of her. I work in retail so it isnt relevant. I was thinking, revise during the week and do homework on saturday and sunday. To be honest a lot of homework is classified as revision as well

    You are an absolute credit to your family, you can't buy work ethic and you can't buy a moral compass either, so well done you

    In your circumstances, I'm sure you can achieve what you need whilst doing the two 6 hour shifts but take it easy, work smart. If you can find something that pays more per hour, so you could cut the time down even better

    Very good luck to you and as I say, with your positive attitude you will go a long way!

    This thread is interesting because it relates to me. I'm retaking A level chemistry as I got a B in it last year and I'm hoping to push it up to an A as one of my uni choices require it. However, I'm working 37.5 hours a week as a HCA which I'm finding really tiring. I've been working for 2 months and I have already tried balencing work and studying; mainly for Ukcat and bmat. My Ukcat was above average (650) and bmat went well so I can do it somewhat well.

    Obviously I am going to cut down the hours substantively when exam season is here, but would it be possible to work and revise for only one subject and get an A?
