    Hello i'm doing exactly the same coursework! I've Completed it and am currently doing write-up for it. I've completed all of the observations , now I'm focusing on the exam. I want to get at least over 90%. And also over 35/40 for my coursework Would love top 12 in country as you get a certificate from the royal astronomical society ! Not that many seem to be taking the exam.

    P.s you need at least 3 lunar observations and about 3 shadow sticks dates over the course of a couple of months
