    I am an A Level student and currently I work 2 days a week usually clocking up 10 to 14 hours. I have decided to work one extra day a week. Is this too much and do you think it will affect my AS results?

    How many hours/days a week do you work? And in what way does it effect you academically?

    it all comes down to you. my work is extremely flexible; i can work from as little as 4 hours a week up to 12/15. its all about balancing your college work, employment and real life. the best thing to do is get into a routine and find out whats comfortable for yourself.

    Do you think it affects your school work or are you managing to keep up your grades?

    Being honest if your doing your alevels you should really concentrate on them.
    I would say 8 hours enough for a week (1 day) or (2 shifts) - Maybe holidays you can be about 12-16 hours. (Depending on shift becuase 16 hours can = 2 days or even 1 full day and 2 four hour shifts etc..)

    Concentrate on exams trust me you might find it easy but near exams you may regret - you can work extra during christmas or summer holidays and half term.

    stick to 8 hours if possible

    Err it depends on the person. I know people that could happily work 30 hours a week on top of school and still get all their As and A*s.

    I work 6 hours a week on a Sunday and have been doing all through year 11, year 12 and year 13. Tbh, for me it is all I can manage. I will be the first to admit my time management is poor and on the occasions that I work both Saturday and Sunday, I start to fall behind. However, as other posters have mentioned, it completely depends on the person. I would never do after school shifts but there are people who go straight from school to the trafford centre and work til ten and still manage to get by.

    I usually do uni work 8am-4pm (either in uni or at home/friend's houses), and paid work 5pm-12am. Generally, I work during all of my free time, as I'm self-employed working from wherever I want so can find ways to relax WHILST I work (usually at my friends socialising and watching TV). If I have somewhere specific to go, I just take a day off, and my hours are flexible in case university gets too much, but that's an average week for me - I don't need any other free time because work and free time interconnect.
