How Do You Manage School and Remote Work?

I'm in my finals and want to secure a remote job before rounding up.

But I'm scared of the difficulty in keeping up with the two.

Anyone with opinions or ideas, I'd appreciate if you share. Thanks.

Well currently I have working remotely with a company outside my country and I am in my penultimate year in the university. I am even study a course far from computer science. I am studying Music and am working remotely as a backend developer. What I have learnt so far is to manage my time appropriately

What about online meetings which your company may call for and you're busy with a test or so?

How do you manage that?

The backend team meet online every Friday 7-8pm and the whole team meet 7-8pm every Saturday. Though most of the time so I know how to fix other things not to affect the meeting time

Do they know that you're in school?

If yes,
Did they agree to pardon you a little?
