I've been working at this place for about 2 1/2 months I'm only on a 4 hr contract and said for the next 3 weeks I cannot work any more than 8 hours a week due to exams. My boss said okay but then only respected this for 1 week as she has put for the next 2 weeks for 20 hrs. She won't accept only 8 hrs anymore do I leave and find somewhere else ?

Assuming that she hasn't just forgotten about your request, and is instead refusing to honour it, then yes - you quit.

Your exams are more important that this part-time job.

Yep pretty much. Asking 20 hours from someone signed up for 4 is beyond reasonable imo, esp when you've already made things clear. tbh they won't care 1 bit about your exams or long term prospects, they just want a name on the rota and you need to be able to say no to these people one way or another.

Id remind your boss first- just to make sure they havent forgotten or something stupid.
If they are still being unreasonable, id quit and look for another job.
