Does anyone know if it is possible to get a job when you're 15???
It's possible (you need a work permit and can only work 12 hours a week i think). I know whsmith and boots hire 15 year olds

i have taken triple science, music, spanish & history
i’m predicted 6/7s
i want to achieve 8/9s!
i already have a grade 9 in religious studies

my plans after year 11: i want to do a levels then uni, but i’m not sure about my degree. i’m thinking of taking english lit, spanish & psychology at a level!
i’m not sure about what i want to do in the future, it baffles me whenever i think of a potential career

i’m feeling ready to start year 11! i want to finish gcses so i can move onto college and go somewhere new bc i think i’m ready for a fresh start!

how i felt about year 10- it was alright mostly but it was the year where i was quite bored of the routine,
so i’m hoping year 11 is more fast paced
hobbies and interests- i play piano, i love reading, i run often, i enjoy listening to music and going to concerts

favourite subject- spanish or english
most hated subject- maybe physics or maths because they’re my worst subjects

favourite way to revise- i like creating posters & making revision songs

Does anyone know if it is possible to get a job when you're 15???
i’ve got a job in the kitchen in a local restaurant. tbh you really just have to put yourself out there, the worst they can do is say no and your life is no different! even if places don’t say they’re hiring, go in and ask! it shows initiative and pro-activeness already! gl with the job hunt!
