    I don't think there are any past papers for the literature as the set texts change every year :/

    Hi! Also, just wondering... I have looked online and looked at translations- they are slightly different to the ones my school has given me, like some verbs are translated in different tenses and some phrases read differently... does the exam board accommodate for these differences or is there a specific translation you have to learn? Thanks

    I think everybody's is slightly different as Latin is a language often open to interpretation, so I think as long as the meaning is the same you'll be fine

    The Nisus and Euraylus is relatively long but packed with imagery , we get questions every week on the sections covered. However , the easier one with Livy I have no analysis

    Heya! My set texts are Cicero's Verres speech, Virgil's Storm at Sea (+ the ship in troubled waters poem), Horace's Satires with the kitchen going up in flames, and Livy's Mucius Scaevola story - I've created memrise courses for all of these texts, in case anyone wants them: they don't have the analysis (had no idea how to copy it neatly out of my book) but they do have the translation.

    Actually got to learning (revising/re-learning) Virgil (Nisus et Euryalus)

    Did not realise how much harder than it actually is compared to livy and cicero (although points are relatively easy cause theres's lot in Virgil).

    Yeah I much prefer Cicero and Livy. I just find it more interesting as well. Virgil definitely the hardest but at least it's my last exam

    Does anyone know if the papers from last year are out yet (not for Nisus et Euryalus) for the prose (Livy and Cicero) since that was a set text last year?

    They don't release last year's paper cause they normally use them for mocks, so only teachers have access to them, however if someone has been emailed, or been sent one, then they can share it.

    Does anyone have any language analysis on 'The bravery of Mucius Scaevola and Cloelia' and 'Verrrs and Cleomenes'. And how the hell are you supposed to do those 8 mark essay questions?
