    I had a job and achieved good grades. It's doable.

    There’s no such thing as your parents ”not letting” you do something. You do what you want. Your parents are irrelevant.

    It boggles me how many university students(!) in this day and age still blindly go with what thier parents think. You’re your own person, it’s time you understood that.

    Maybe its time you stop letting your parents control what you do. You're old enough to make your own decisions. It is strange though,most parents would want their kids to have part time jobs at uni. If you're going to uni away from home, then there is literally no one from stopping you from getting job once you're there. If you're staying at home... well the same applies. Why should your parents stop you?
