    yeah, you don't get a full translation so you need to know it as best you can, but if you're stuck on a word they give you all the translations of every word which is nice :P it's basically asking about poetic techniques, so your teacher goes over what the poet does to achieve an effect (usually "make the story more vivid"...) and then the exam will ask you examples of those techniques. also i think there's a 10 mark essay asking how effective the poet is at achieving an effect (again usually "vividness" and you just have to say what they do really.
    Ok, thanks!

    It probably can as it's worth 50 marks - that's 1/3 of the whole marks over the two papers! (At least that's for additional language, I don't know about civilisation as I'm not doing it)

    For me, the first comprehension was good, translations were quite easy (apart from the last sentence on the second one) and the second comprehension was meh.
    How did additional go for you?
