    Got mocks next week how do I study citizenship.
    Read your notes.
    Practice exam papers.
    Download them from the exam boards websites.
    Check youtube for any short videos.

    I sat my Citizenship GCSE exams in May this year and got an A*.

    When I was revising for it, I first of all focused on learning all of the content and gaining KNOWLEDGE. I did this by reading through the text book we used in class, as well as the CGP revision guide. Then I would make notes and posters, making them as clear and concise as possible so they would be easier to remember.

    I would also watch YouTube videos explaining different topics, however there aren’t many videos tailored to GCSE Citizenship available, so I had to find the videos from other sources.

    Then I made sure I could APPLY MY KNOWLEDGE. I did this by printing off every single past exam paper I could find as well as the mark scheme for both Paper 1 and Paper 2 and practiced. By doing this, this allows you to get used to how the exam papers are structured and what questions you struggle with.

    Make sure you can answer the longer questions (e.g the 6/8/12/15 markers) effectively, as these are the questions that will either make or break your grade! Ask your teacher to mark your practice papers for you so they can give you feedback and spot where you need to improve.
