It went pretty well I think I did it on lunar features (aided) and the shadow stick readings (unaided). What about you?

I'd hardly say 36/40 is low! That is an A* as far as I know our teacher is alright but I did the majority of my work and revision at home via the textbooks once on our school we only got 1 lesson per week (and that was at lunchtime)!

Nice to see I'm not the only one doing this
36/40 is most definitely NOT low! I did the unaided lunar features and then the sunspots to measure the suns rotational period and only got 29/40 overall! I haven't really started revising yet (our teacher isn't great really...).. I'm prioritizing other subjects as Astronomy is an extra curricular one.. I'll probably just end up cramming using the textbook on the weekend before :P

Yeah same No i mean its low considering the amount of blood sweat and tears he MADE us put in it. I'm doing it extracurricular aswell and we were lucky if our teacher every turned up once per week so basically we've learnt the whole syllabus by ourselves :/

Oh.. I see what you mean now. To be fair I probably don't even deserve 29/40! I just ended up procrastinating so much that I left the write up until the day before and spent like four hours typing it up and waffling about it each time. Our teacher doesn't really seem to take it seriously and it's cancelled a lot yeah :/ I plan on just spending all weekend going over the basic stuff.. Hopefully that'll work

Ironically he never turned up for our lessons but he kept telling us to add irrelevant stuff to our coursework I don't see why it's not full marks (sorry to be cocky) haha. I hate him so much, when we asked him for our marks he blackmailed us, saying he would only give them to us if we wrote an article about how fun Astronomy was with him. What a piece of ****

Wow.. He does sound worse than our teacher. She just assumes it's all easy (as she understands it) and doesn't explain it all particularly well, leaving us to teach ourselves really. I'd be surprised if I got anything above a B really (not that I'm complaining!) but it's still lower than what I'm predicted in everything else..

From what I've heard, seems like most people will be cramming the weekend before! Lets hope they're nice to us with the questions and give us really easy ones?
