    Question Put the job before your studies

    I am experiencing difficulties to express this situation. It is for an academic writing

    She does not want to put the job before her studies
    She doesnt want to prioritize her job rather than her studies
    She doesnt want to prioritize her job instead of her studies


    I guess they are all three wrong

    How should I say ?

    I would use the first one but I guess it is not really formal and academic so I do not think it is appropriate to use it

    Re: Put the job before your studies

    She doesn't want to put her job before her studies.
    She doesn't wasn't to prioritise her job over her studies.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    If it's for formal (academic) usage, don't use the contraction doesn't​, and be sure to end the sentence with a full stop (period).
