    I’m 17 and currently studying my last year of my A levels and retaking my maths gcse. I get one day off a week and I not only work in the business but I also babysit my bosses children. I need the money but as someone who potentially wants to go onto uni, i know realistically I shouldn’t be working this much if I want to achieve that. Can anyone give me advice on what I should do? I’m worried if I cut down my hours too much they’ll just end up dropping me and I can’t afford to not be earning money as I pay for everything I need. Help?

    It depends how well you get on with your boss.

    It may come down to deciding the job and money or exams and uni.

    You can first start by being better organised and using the rest of your time to work harder and more effectively during the rest of the week.

    When you say pay for everything, then are you an only child? You mean food ? If its only extras, then I would take leave from the job till after exams as it ccould cost you years and that time could be spent revising. Its only till the end of June at latest.

    If you have no choice then you just have to be better organised and use the other 6 days to their maxmimum. Youve had two years to figure this out though.

    In life terms your A levels are more important and it coul costs you many hundreds of pounds plus a year to resit. they are your future.
