I've applied to do astrophysics at Uni and was just wondering if I'd be able to make jokes to people about how I'm doing rocket science.

Rocket science is more aeronautical engineering, whereas astrophysics is a pure physical science concerning space and celestial bodies.

Maybe, I'm not sure, I mean rockets have to know all about space and stuff right? Also there's orbit and gravity and stuff which I'm pretty sure is rocket science which I did at A level, not sure if you do that in astrophysics though.

na, rocket science is a branch of aerospace engineering, astrophysics is a branch of astronomy

Not technically. Astrophysics is space science pretty much and rocket science would count as Aerospace/Aeronautical Engineering.
