    I hav my mock exam in four days and my actual exam in a few months. I've only been studing Astronomy for four months and starting to panic slightly. Does anyone here have any resources they know of which could help me revise? If anyone knows of any good websites and can share with me the links I would be very grateful!

    Thank you

    I don't know what exam board you're doing, but when I did Astronomy GCSE (Edexcel) this was our main resource: http://www.astronomygcse.co.uk/Astro...e/IndexNew.htm

    The key facts word docs are particularly useful for revision, and as far as I can remember the actual web pages (accessed by clicking on the titles within the picture near the top) for each topic do a pretty good job as well.

    The specification given by the exam board is also very useful for checking you know everything! https://www.edexcel.com/migrationdoc..._Spec_2012.pdf (If you aren't edexcel, you can just google your course and you should find it). Skip to page 11 or so (according to the page numbers in the corners), where it starts giving abc lists of things you need to know for each topic. We had printed out versions to physically tick off things we knew, which was pretty handy!

    Best of luck with your mocks and exams

    Thank you very much. I'm pretty sure I am using Edexcel, and the specifercation looks very useful.
