    I'm sure you're not that bad anyway a B in Latin is perfectly respectable, Latin has pretty high grade boundaries, and its one of the hardest GCSE's there is.

    If you're down on yourself you won't do well, just work your hardest and you'll do your best, which is all you have to do.
    I agree.:yep:

    I think it's the first year for Sagae and the Aeneid so there aren't any past papers for both. The language papers were easy except for 'oblata' (I'm guessing everyone is doing OCR).

    I just realised that procrastination comes from the latin 'pro cras' meaning: for tomorrow. Anyway how did everyone find the prose exam?

    It's the second year; there are past papers available for both prose (which has already taken place) and the Aeneid - but just one which is nowhere near enough in my opinion xD

    Hi Latin peeps! Probably not that many people who do it as most of the population are not in private education but for us who are or people who's schools are traditional let's discus the horrors of Latin!
    I'm sorry but I find that slightly offensive, I go to an academy that used to be a comprehensive and I do Latin.

    I had the phrase 'but father Aeneas, hearing the name of Turnus' stuck in my head throughout the prose exam... it was great.

    To my absolute astonishment I fount the prose ok! Prose is def my most hated so very relieved its over and there was no question I couldn't answer! Some of my classmates struggled with the bit in sagae where it asked "how did the witches get to him?" But thank god I had revised that!!! :-)

    I'm sorry I really didn't mean for it to be, I was just trying to sum up that there are not as many people who take Latin so I couldn't find many other threads and wanted to open one for people who don't always enjoy Latin! Sorry :-)

    Fine I think. I might have lost one or two marks on the 8 marker and the one about the effect of the man's words on Thelaphron, I wasn't too sure about.

    It's fine, I guess I sort of missed what you meant feeling prepared for verse?

    No revision for the Verse yet, but I start tomorrow. I know a bit of the text already + how to analyse it and I know what happens in it roughly

    I'm doing sources instead of verse so I will have to start revising for that sometime soon!
