    Aw no! Mind you, I looked at that question and if I would have done it, I would have answered it like you did, so you're probably not the only one who did that! I hope if so many have answered like we have, or ran out of time, or just plain struggled, they might just lower the boundaries for this year! Fingers crossed!

    Ahh we can hope!!

    I used the argument that the more attention spent on the successors and improving their status's showed they were thinking about who to succeed them etc. Threw some quotes in so they should be happy! The mark schemes tend to give vague points then say "And any other supported argument." so they're pretty chill on what you argue as long as it relates. You guys should all be fine.

    What do you do if you think the invigilators messed up?

    The exam hall was just out Classic class, which is only about 14 people. So they started early, at 1:26 (should've been 1:30).

    The exam was an hour and a half long, so the time it should have finished was 3:00, but since we started 4 minutes early, 2:56.

    However, I'm 90% sure we finished at 2:46. When the guy told us to stop writing, we all looked confused and he said it so quietly... I know 10 minutes isn't THAT much, but nearly my whole class came out and said we were mid-way in our final point/conclusion, and I just can't stop thinking that we got robbed of 10 minutes. >.>

    Should I complain to the college, or? But of course, with the no phone rule, I couldn't take a picture of the clock so really, it's just our word of 14 students against the word of experienced invigilators. But like I said, I really am 90% sure that they stopped us before 2:56... >.>

    Ah, we did the same ones then! I too tried to write everything for the 20, and it was difficult because it was practically a forty marker! That could easily have been a praetorian guard vs other factors for a forty if they'd put their minds to it, it was really unfair think I spent about five minutes trying to think what to put into it! How do you think you've done? I think I've scraped a high D or a low C, which sucks cause I need a B for uni
    I know :/ I tried to cut some information out and focus on detail instead of all of the facts so I'm hoping to get a high D and the Augustus paper pull me up to a C- fingers crossed! I need a C- good luck! Hope you get a good grade

    My plan was to do the Claudius questions and the questions on the writers but when I looked at the Claudius questions, yeah my jaw kinda dropped :eek:

    So I did the Tiberius questions and the strengths and weaknesses of the emperors instead :/

    Exam was okay I think...

    How did you find yours?
    I'm hoping I did okay but I don't think I did very well but I don't think I did really bad either! Haha fingers crossed for good marks good luck!

    I have attempted to learn it all from scratch the past 3 days, so kind of all of them, in a stupid chaotic sense! The last four years a question on heroism has come up in the 50 marker, so I'm kind of thinking that won't happen again though, which is sad! I mainly focused on Fate and the Role of the gods. Also a bit on Augustan values and women

    Ahh i don't know why the 10 markers exist tbh they waste time that could be spent doing the two bigger essays :/ can you remember what the 10 marker question on Antigone was? I was trying to remember but it's gone lol. Same, I always feel trag is harder :/ I'm sure you could get an A as it was quite a good paper

    Same! I did more analysis of what they did that was important with little to no facts! Good luck to you too!! What's your uni?

    Also, I need a bit of advice. When I first started the Tib&Clau paper, I started with the forty marker, but couldn't concentrate because two teachers were having a conversation about the geography exam right in front of my table. I've been debating all weekend, should I tell one of the college directors about this? (I'm hesitant to do so because one of the teachers IS a director and I can't really see what good it would except piss off the said teacher)
