now i'm talking about the real deal here - or rather asking about it.
so umm who's doing the qualification in the topic's title this summer?
Me, but you know about that. I bet you one corrupt governor that we're the only ones doing it...
Shall we form an AQA A2 Latin Soc - the most exclusive society on TSR?
perhaps.. we should only really be members of it for the next 12 days though.
that said, perhaps we can encourage future generations of aqa a2 latinists. yet that said, aqa are getting rid of latin a level in 2006.
but why not, let's be bold and stand up for a valuable and important cause.
Not only is it the most exclusive society, it's also the shortest-lived. Damn we're cool...I guess it just goes with the whole sexy Latin thing. Aren't you so pissed off about the AQA thing? How can they drop Latin? It gets some of the best results out of all their A levels! Why not drop something pointless, like General Studies? No one really wants to do it.
I'm doing AQA A2 Latin next year, when it's in its death-throes. Am I eligible to join your ever-so exclusive society?
big brother will get back to you
Oh the excitement! A fresh victim! Can we invent some exciting initiation rites to inflict on him?
anyway, in terms of sorting out the "AQA A2 Latin Soc", we need to put it in our signatures, perhaps enhanced with various text colours etc, to make it look exciting. oo and how about a moto or something equally as cool?
also, i believe that as being a member or such a society, it would be fitting to be sent (during exam time) a daily quotation from the set texts being studied.
and aenor, of course you can join.
Ok children, your quote of the day is "delphinus occurrit". I also propose this as our societal motto. While the quote is of relatively little importance and gives one no guidance on quotidiennal life, it is one of the few parts of Pliny which make me smile.
Gender doesn't matter, they don't have women in Rome. Besides, you give no clue as to your gender, so using the masculine form should be an acceptable compromise (cf. French). Can't we sacrifice you just a little bit?
i like that as a motto.
how about we use this text (all coded up) in our signature?
AQA A2 Latin Society - size 2, bold, blue
"Delphinus occurrit" - size 1, itallic, dark slate blue
looking something like this:
AQA A2 Latin Society
Looks pretty good to me. Although maybe we should make it more complicated, in order to divert time away from Pliny. Not that I'm trying to avoid revision.
mmmaybe. once i finish letter 24 and 18 (which will leave me only with the bloody corrupt governor to get done).
I did 18 last night, it's actually pretty good. And 24's kinda dull but straightforward. I'm supposed to be doing 10 now, which is why I'm on here. If that comes up we're so screwed!
i'm even more screwed if 25 comes up, as i won't have looked at it in the slightest. but it shouldn't come up as it was in last year's paper. being the leaders of this society, surely we should be setting a better example.
Well...at least we've been revising. And we are discussing bloody Pliny, so that's virtually revision as well. I don't dare not revise any of them, I know that the one I ignore will be the one to come up.
i like to live life dangerously. in fact, that's why i'm taking latin a level.
