Latin Verse Set Text - the Aeneid (Tomorrow) Watch

    Hi,

    I did Latin GCSE last year and got an A* and also did this exact set text (Is this Nisus and Euryalus?)

    I did ever so slightly worse in verse than prose, but one tip is to learn style like the simile or alliteration etc. as majority of questions are linked to that.

    I did it the same as you by learning the whole English translation- and did by picking out key words in the latin so I knew which passage it was. If you can do that you're guaranteed a B at worst, since so much is whether you know the translation or not.

    I would send you my notes except i'm sure I burnt them... so that's not an option.

    From my memory, I doubt the first one about the gate duty will come up since that was our translation... Knowing the general story for 8 marker will help you, as that requires no latin.

    Good luck!

    To be honest, I'm surprised I'm not panicking more.
    It must be due to the fact that I broke down over the Pliny the night before and then the exam ended up being really doable.
    I've just got my fingers crossed they'll keep swaying to the first half

    I didn't like the paper very much, found it harder than the Pliny paper because the questions were difficult to understand, especially the one about the comparisons??

    What about you?

    I thought it was kind of confusing as well!

    I also messed up my vocab in the 10-marker - I got the word for thoughtless and the word for moon the wrong way around. Gahhhh!

    Really? 10-marker was okay - the rest was pushed for time, I thought...
