Just recently turned 16, got my GCSE’s in 2019.
Is it worth getting any form of job right now or should I study for my GCSE’s?

yes id reccomend getting a job asap, its the most valuable asset to an employer - shows youre dedicated and hard working assuming you get a good reference. fairly hard to get a full on job at 16, but i know that greggs hire 16 year olds

if you know how to effectively revise it wont be a problem, i spent 1-2 hours on weekdays afterschool revising and came out with 9s, some people in my class revised for 6 hours a day and got 5s, all depends on how you effectively revise.
gcses shouldnt be taking over your entire life, assuming you finish school at half 3 and spend an hour at the gym including travel that makes it to about 5 o clock, you still have 5 hours to work, revise, eat, shower etc depending on when you sleep. you will have less free time sure, but to be successful thats the price you pay. if youre spending 4+ hours per day revising and not getting atleast straight 8s you need to research better revision techniques.

You can start looking for jobs now. But just be aware that quite a few places wont take you on until you actually leave school (i.e. the end of june)
