    Hi,
    I think that we will get a frieze question, because they have to ask a question on architectural sculpture and friezes have never come up? It makes sense really... Or if not, it will probably be a theme across different types of arch sculpture. Thank goodness pediments came up last year so hopefully we will have escaped!!! Hopefully we will get a nice paper
    If a frieze question does come up, do you have any idea what type of question it may be? I wanna do some practice essays but have no idea where to start!

    I'm thinking: Success of capturing the subject; myth/war depiction; maybe something on the Parthenon Ionic Frieze

    Just found the specimen paper... it has a frieze question... start there maybe?

    Ooh right okay, yeah I thought it might be something about myth/war/ or maybe conflict.
    I'm terrible at setting the essays out properly! If one was to come up asking about myth or war would we just really need to outline any friezes that outline this subject and how they achieve that/how well they achieve that? With capturing the subject how would one go about setting out that essay? Just how good the frieze itself is in terms of representing it's subject through it's features etc? Sorry if i'm being complicated

    Dw about it

    So yeah- set out each frieze and what it depicts. Think about what issues that the particular subject brings up. Then look at where each frieze fails/succeeds, looking at the frieze as a whole and in terms of individual figures. The question will probs ask which is most successful so then come to a judgement about that

    This may sound really stupid but for example in that specimen paper question you sent me, it asks a question on 'sculpture A'. That doesn't mean we only have to refer to that part of the frieze does it? Can we refer to the whole of the frieze, for example in that scenario all of the Siphnian Treasury frieze? Thanks

    Yeah, refer to it all I assume... would be a bit insane to ask 40 marks on the tiny segment given

    Hi Everyone,

    I'm doing the Aeneid and Augustus, done loads of notes on both if anybody thinks they'll be of any use PM me for them.

    Has anybody got A grade essays they've written on either side, my teacher doesn't believe in giving people other peoples essays to learn from; regardless if that's how you learn or not. It would be much appreciated.

    Thanks!
    Hi - we're doing the exact same modules!

    I was just wondering if you knew what the 1st and 2nd Constitutional Settlements were for Augustus? My teacher hasn't given us many notes for them and all I know is the dates and during one of them the senate named him 'Augustus'..
    Do you need any help in return?

    As for essays, I've only got handwritten ones and I'm not sure how to attach photos - do you know? I'm on my phone..

    Thanks

    Is anyone doing the Four Greek tragedies tomorrow? Antinoge/Oepdis/Medea/Hippolytus?

    It seems like no-one apart from my college is doing them, haha. Kinda stressing, I don't really know how to revise them except using sites like Shmoop.

    I am, and it's ridiculous. God only knows how many quotes you're supposed to know, none of them will sink in for me.

    I'm doing Greek tragedy tomorrow and have just spent the day re-reading all four of them. A quote is apparently nice to see here and there but not vital for top marks. I can't remember them

    Yeah for everyone doing the tragedies I got an A in that paper without using barely any quotes, literally maybe one or two. So don't worry too much, it isn't overly necessary
