    From what I've heard - As Latin is easy (I could do some passages at GCSE) but A2 is a lot harder

    Even at GCSE they said the same (hence my a* boundary being like 40/70) yet I got full ums and almost full raw marks in those.

    With considerable difficulty.

    I'm pretty good at Latin (A* at GCSE, projected 90+ UMS for AS) but I highly doubt I could've started AS from scratch.

    Unless you happen to be very 'tabular minded' (as there are a LOT of verb and noun tables to learn) or just a general wizz at languages, I wouldn't recommend it.
