    Most Unis don't accept A-Levels in General Studies or Critical Thinking. Would this also be the case for Citizenship? Or is Citizenship about as respected as something like Sociology?

    Citizenship certainly doesn't seem to have the greatest reputation in the world but it's probably fine as a third or (preferably) fourth choice as long as your other choices are more relevant to what the university wants. I've certainly not seen anyone explicitly say they don't accept Citizenship as a subject so it's not the same as General Studies or CT.

    I took Citizenship as an A-Level alongside Psychology and Sociology, and I already had an Art A-Level, and Anthropology and ICT at AS. It linked in and gave me more UCAS points (I ended up with like 400). UCAS points can change your uni options, so yes it can be valuable, especially if it links in with what you want to do at uni (I do Psychology).

    Not much at all, it was 2 exams for me (I resat both AS exams as well, so I took 4 that summer) and it fine. It's mostly general knowledge about law, politics, global issues and such. It covers a lot of subject area without going into too much detail, it mainly challenges you to think ie. should prisoners have rights?
