Hey guys! I'm currently doing GCSE Citizenship as one of my GCSEs now and I have trouble in finding revision resources or helpful sites online for it. My exam board for the subject is Edexcel. Please let me know if someone knows any good sites for citizenship it would be really helpful.

I got a 9 in GCSE citizenship and I personally loved Gcsemasteryhub.co.uk (GCSE Mastery Hub) for citizenship revision, however they use to have lots for citizenship but when they revamped the website everything changed and there no longer is alot however the tiktok says there is more coming out for citizenship, just watch the website every now and then.

I'd also suggest using primrose kitten, she has quiet alot for citizenship edexcel, on top of that the revision guide that parsons edexcel makes are really good, I spent a good 2 or 3 weeks just going over and over and over page, reading, taking notes and building mind maps.

I really enjoy visual learning so I also made hundreds of presentations to revise with, using media sources (perfect for evidence on 15 markers).
Thank you so much! I got an 8 on my mocks recently and really want to secure that 9 so I'll definitely check out these:smile:
