    Not doing Lit myself, but you can find the papers here: http://www.ocr.org.uk/qualifications...tin-h039-h439/

    There are past papers, Mark schemes and examiner reports.

    Best of luck!

    (PS: nice use of sine :P)

    I reckon that I know the translations pretty well. I need to work on the 10-markers, though!

    Ah, sorry. The structure should be the same regardless though!

    Doing the Classics A-Level instead, so I'm taking the Latin and Cl. Greek language papers.

    Not exactly lucky haha :P

    For the 10 markers, are we purely tested on our knowledge and understanding of the content / story?
    Or is it about the actual Latin text? (e.g. rhetorical techniques and quoting and all that?)

    How are you feeling for the lit?
    Not bad, I'm just preparing some Ovid 10 marker answers now.

    On another note WHO AT OCR THOUGHT HAVING GREEK LIT AND LATIN LIT ON THE SAME DAY WOULD BE A GOOD IDEA

    basically in the ten markers they just want you to show that you know the themes and what's going on in the actual text

    Okay, thanks. So you don't need to comment on the actual Latin?

    No need for actual latin quotes, no.

    Although I prefer the language, I kinda have comfort in the lit in the fact that at least there are no set answers, you can form your opinions right there and then....
    How about you?

    I waaaay prefer the language, but you do have a point!
    I just feel majorly underprepared for the lit and I'm not really sure what to expect

    Okay that is so helpful! Didn't have much idea about the structure of the exam so you've clarified a lot
    Good luck! (Or, as a non-Latinite friend said to me on Monday, 'goodus luckus!')

    What texts are you guys doing? I think the teachers chose, so we probably arent doing the same ones.
    Anyone doing Cicero de imperio and Ovid metamorphosis (the story on Pentheus?)
    Good luck everyone! Hate the fact there are no mocks, but think the exam will be okay, since as long as you put something down you may get marks (since the mark schemes tend to be like history; more on opinions and intelligent points, than any actual checklist)

    I believe we are all doing the same texts The exam board chooses the texts for each year.
    If you know the text well, the exam will be okay!
