Want to do a part-time job

I am a second-year student of BUMS at Jamia Hamdard. Last year, I was not allowed to appear in my annual exams due to shortage of attendance. I suffer from sleep disorder and am unable to wake up early morning for my classes. I want to do a part-time job to take care of my expenses. I am quite good at mimicry and also interested in acting. Please advise me.
You should invest in an alarm clock that will help you wake up in time for classes. You must make up your mind whether you wish to work at your studies, or sleep. If you go to bed at a regular time and get about seven to eight hours of sleep, you should be able to attend classes and complete your studies.
Since you have completed two years of the course, it would be advisable to continue and complete the programme so that you are then able to practise.
If you cannot continue your studies, you can try for a job with a BPO or call centre, as you say you have a good voice, and can develop your communication skills.
This will help you to earn a reasonably good salary, and you can then do graduation through correspondence from Delhi University or Indira Gandhi National Open University.
I think you should complete a basic graduation, and establish yourself in a steady job before you get into fields like acting or voice recording. These are not regular jobs and if you have the talent you can try your hand at such assignments even while working.
