    At my sixth form, its compulsory to do Citizenship AS, however because I am doing 9 exams in the summer (much more than the average in my school), I could drop it if I argued a little...

    Now, should I drop it, in order to concentrate on my other 4 subjects? Because I am not on top of my work, so revision for citizenship could adversely affect my revision time and grades for other exams.

    Note, I did get an A in the Citizenship mock paper I done, but that was only one section of the exam, (we didn't do the active citizenship log section).

    PS: I am aiming for a Politics related course...

    Wouldn't that mean I would get a U which I would then have to declare to universities?

    And thanks I will do

    I don't think you have to declare Us because they're not certificated, but I could be wrong

    Just do the exam and see what you get. Is revision required, or is it like GCSE where it's common sense?

    Well yeah it is common sense; some of it. Thats how I got an A in the first part, but I was lucky a topic came up which I was interested in and had prior knowledge. In the real thing, I will have to revise, can't rely on luck

    If universities have to see every subject you took (which I very much doubt) then don't do it, otherwise go for it and test your luck.

    If you just take an A level module, get a U and then drop the whole subject, you don't need to declare on UCAS. If you are entered for the entire AS course then get a U, you will need to declare it on UCAS.
    Also, if you tell your school that taking AS Citizenship is too much for you, could it affect what your tutor says in your reference?
