Interesting Fact - Exam Grades

According to a report from the UK Commission for Employment and Skills, the Saturday job is dead.

(In the 90s, nearly half of sixth-formers (16-17-year-old students) in the UK had a Saturday job, but that number had fallen to 18% by 2014.

Now, before you say it's because youths of today are a bunch of lazy so and sos, it seems it's because they prefer to spend their time studying.  And they could well be right for doing so, as research from the Institute for Social and Economic Research at the University of Essex found that taking a part-time job  while studying for exams, helped students gain work skills and pocket money for those teenage essentials, but had a negative impact on their exam results.

I would still take a Saturday job.  No one cares about your exam results after a few years, but people always value experience.)
