    Hey guys,
    Did anyone do section a and see that 'otium' question
    the options were depression, fear, anger and over-excitement, but I'm sure it meant idleness.
    All the translating websites and translations of Catullus 51 say the same.
    Do you think it was one of those mistakes?

    Yesterday's exam was not great - i think i made several mistakes, especially the first line of the translation (i did section a)

    and although latin was my last one, its kind of left me slightly depressed - I'm supposed to be really happy - what's wrong with me?!?!?!

    anyone, by any chance, got answers for section a???

    oh and what do you think overall grade boundaries will be???

    I can't really remember the paper...

    - he left by night
    - Caesar had ordered him to leave
    - daughter was absent on the shores of Libya

    Translation:
    I say, "Oh deities that are living in neighbouring buildings and now those temples never to be seen by my eyes again. Those gods who must be left behind in the lofty city of Quirimus - be greeted by me for all time."

    - he worshiped the gods with this prayer
    - sobbing

    - otium?? i have leisure =S

    Yep, and also it said the last section, written by Clodia, was written by Tacitus :L

    Apparently the person who wrote this exam was fired recently by OCR for writing stupid questions, and they never changed the exam he wrote. That's quite clear looking at their mistakes!
    It was actually written by neither of those two, but by Cicero.

    Yeah and I'm sure OCR edited the paper on-line?

    I have no idea how to lay out a latin literature 8/10 mark question the ones where you are given bullet points as a guide? My teacher is useless and expects me to know how..
    Can anyone give me an example essay so I can understand how to structure my answer?
    Thanks!
