Citizenship action is a planned course of informed action to address a citizenship issue or question of concern and aimed at delivering a benefit or change for a particular community or wider society. This is a required part of the GCSE Citizenship Studies course and students are examined on their action as part of Paper 2.
Each year, centres must certify that candidates have completed their Citizenship Action and submit a form to confirm this.
The links to the Citizenship Action form and the authentification submission are below:
With exam season on the horizon, we want to share a few tips and tricks, as well as handy guides and links to places you can turn to for support before, during and after the exam period.
