    Classical Civilisation. Exceedingly interesting.

    Assuming you did it at A Level then? Is it particularly difficult? It did catch my eye as soon as I saw it, and thought it would be a doddle until someone said they thought it sounded really hard. Did you find it a lot of work and quite a 'heavy' subject? (Assuming you've done it.)

    I've done the American equivalent of it (so, Advanced Placement) and am continuing it next semester. I would imagine the course load would not be as much as philosophy, although you might have to study at some point classical philosophy. Still, from my experience, I think it's a worthwhile subject. Is it challenging? Yes, but assuming it's the same as here, you'll end up with an amazing grasp on classical history, culture, and the Latin language, which transfers itself into an even greater grammatical command of the English language.
