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

Me🙋*♀️, i didnt do great on my coursework so i need to make up for it, i really want to get an A i would be disappointed with a B but good luck im sure u will get top 12! I have been doing loads of flashcards and past papers just make sure u r harsh on yourself when marking them if you’re aiming to get an A* in the test (like me) u wanna be getting in the 100s so that in the exam u can make an allowance for small mistakes under pressure
