    GS and CT aren't usually looked on highly or even considered by some unis so it seems little pointless although from what I gather it doesn't involve too much work.

    Don't do either.
    Universities do not respect them one bit.

    There is no work involved in general studies - its an easy but rather pointless qualification

    You could safely take on general studies without increasing your workload at all, and critical thinking won't take that much preparation, so taking the extra subject is fine. I've no idea what citizenship is like but if it's work-heavy, you might find yourself a bit overwhelmed when it comes to exam time. Otherwise you should be able to cope okay. They're fairly hefty subjects that you're taking, but there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to cope with the load — it's unlikely to prove too much.

    Most universities won't care whether or not you take general studies and/or critical thinking. They won't make your application any stronger.

    You have 5 AS levels already. No need to make it 6.
