Yes, it is compulsory. I don't know what it is like now (it only appeared in my last year of school so I wouldn't be surprised if it had been refined since then), but it used to be the case that nobody could really be bothered and within a few months, nobody in the school was doing any of the work they were meant to. That was probably due to how it was presented: they had these daft booklets which were basically "fill in the blanks" with your opinions on various moral and work related issues. There wasn't a whole lot about the political system as such, it was more an extension of the compulsory GCSE RE syllabus trying to get people to form opinions.

All the simple programs have been written.
