No, I don't think it's really a very widespread GCSE with too many schools that offer a course in it. I'd sort of like to, but I think there are more useful GCSE's that open up more doors than astronomy. have fun with it though!

Yeah Im taking it and my astronomy teacher said there is around 5,000 students across England and Wales.Its a really interesting course and the syllabus is quite challenging but if you work really hard at it you will be fine.The coursework is quite long and dragged out IN MY OPINION but its really rewarding and it will look good as a future credential.My exam is in two months and im aiming for an A so im currently revising crazy amounts.

Thanks guys, sorry I have replied late it's just I'm new on this website. You're lucky with your teacher, mine seems to be really unorganised and I am starting to worry if I will actually do the exam or not. (In perspective I haven't even done the coursework, which is annoying because I want to go into a career with Astronomy). 1235mine, I know you are going to do well in the exam, you have dedication!

I got put through for an early entry astronomy gcse in year 8, in hindsight I don't know why we did it when we were 12/13 Hahha but it was a really fun gcse in my opinion I only got put through because I went to the astronomy club not because I'm clever or anything, but I worked my socks off an scrapped an A grade which I was and am still really happy with! And yes you're right, very few people do it for some reason. I can't remember whether or not it was really difficult, or I just found it hard as I was 13 at the time, but if you revise hard, there is no reason why you can't succeed!
