    I didn't do either. It isn't even the law that you have to do A levels, that's just silly.

    No, not to do the A-level.
    though according to our school was have to do a few hours of RE/citizenship stuff... so on monday we have a 'flexible learning day' where we learn how to be a 'global citizen' :|
    though, most likely they're just lying because they can't think of anything interesting to do for the sixth formers ¬¬

    I think you have to do a few hours of citizenship like stuff up until about year 10 after that I thought it was optional. I didn't do any after year 11 I don't think, I never had a lesson called "Citizenship."

    is it right to repect others? should murderes go to jail? is it wrong for politicians to steal?

    Citizenship is Very easy. you must have been dropped on your head at birth if you do not A* the subject for A level or GCSE, strictly common sence.

    if you take it as Alevel take it as your fifth one, dont revise and youll still get an A* i was made to do it for GCSE by school fell asleep for first 30 mins still got A* and A level, its a weak subject with little value, if you do take it again you should be top grading it its just sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ooooooooooooooooooooooooo common sense........................... .




    peace out

    no its not the law
    however it is the law that (non private) schools have to give you some sort of lessons in 'personal development and citizenship', although this can be as little as an hour assembly a week it can also be a citizenship alevel or anything else they want
    schools can make any subject that they want compulsory for you to do so long as this is made clear before you join

    That's not the case. Citizenship Studies is accepted by Oxford, Cambridge and Birmingham as a genuine A Level qualification. I take it and my Citizenship teacher rang the three of them to check.

    OK I take part of it back. they are not law but still unis will still view it as acceptable third subject.
