    Im filling out an application form for some part time work and it asks what is the maximum number of hours I can work per week.

    Im at sixth form (so this would be evenings + weekends), what would you say is a reasonable amount?

    Anything up to 15 hours maybe. But it completely depends on how much spare time you have and how many hours it takes you to do independent study, so it doesn't really matter what I think is a reasonable amount.

    Are you over/under eighteen? Law and stuff, how many you're allowed to work etc.

    Edit: About ten was enough for me I think.

    I did between 15-20 and it didn't impact on my studies at all, depends on the individual.

    I would put 10-12 hours, as the chances are they'll still put you in for overtime.
