    Would translating astrologorum as singular instead of plural be a major or minor error?

    Thanks. I put "he asked for their plan" so I presume that means I lose the mark?
    I just realised I think I put 'made their plan' or something but I can't really remember does that mean I would lose a mark!?

    I am seriously forgetful... was that in the comprehension or the translation?

    Also was it 1 or 2 marks? Because a harsh mark-scheme could drop you 2, if that was what it was worth.

    I'm doing Virgil's Aeneid IX and a sources paper (instead of a 2nd set text).

    There's only the one past paper from last year, but it is on the Aeneid IX thankfully.

    I put "They easily crushed a few slaves, who had been left behind to save the mistress" - but this was the other bit I wasn't sure about...
    I feel stupid now- I put "the slaves, who were tired [don't ask] from having worked for the mistress, were pushed easily.

    The "peteret" was rather awkward; I put "to carry out his plan", because when you read on, it is actually Acitenus who kills her, or whatever his name was.
