    I'm currently in year 12 but looking to pursue a career in astronomy, so before I apply & go to university I decided to do the gcse astronomy course, however my school/sixth form don't actually teach the course so I'm left to teach it myself, does anyone have any tips/help for what they used or how they revised?

    I taught myself GCSE Astronomy in year 11. All I did was buy this book, and use revision websites online:

    http://www.astronomygcse.co.uk/Astro...e/IndexNew.htm
    http://www.yusufahmed.com/wp/gcse-astronomy/

    (there were some more but I can't find them at the moment!)

    Oh and also, on Edexcel's specification there is a list which tells you basically everything you'll be questioned on for each topic. You can use this as a kind of check-list when you revise

    Good Luck!

    P.S if you need any help or what ever pm me
