I love astronomy and I love the course, but I am really struggling to remember all the information needed. Does anyone have any tips that may help me, please? :-) Any websites would be useful too! Thanks :-)

I recommend the book by Nigel Marshall, 

http://www.amazon.co.uk/GCSE-Astronomy-Guide-Pupils-Teachers/dp/0953634574/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1337085816&sr=8-1-fkmr0

And I also think flashcards are good bet, as are getting someone to test you on things! Or try walking round as you read, and associate words with places in your house! Good luck :)

a good way to revise astronomy would be to skim read a section of your notes and then a short while later write down everything you remember. Keep doing this

i know it's a really slow process but i find it help. good luck with your exam i have mine in a few days(28th may)! I'm finding the course a little difficult to process and keep in my long term memory too     

a great website is astronomy gcse.co.uk if you haven't tried that already :)
