GCSE level questions on the Earth in Space

Many of these questions contain diagrams, therefore putting them all on one page would mean a big scroll down and a long time for the page to load. I have therefore put each question on a separate page.

Click on a question number to view one of the following questions - a rough guide to content is given to help you choose! A solution to each question is linked from the question page. The mark scheme is in red; and comments to help you understand why the marks are awarded in that way are in green.
