Alright, a little experiment. The idea behind this is as follows - in the run-up to exams, many people try to revise and get notes together, etc, they often try to do it in groups but find they get distracted easily and so on. If enough people are interested, what we could do is, for each module, work on helping each other revise. So... say... Greek Epic. I'd start up a topic on it, listing the exam specification in the first post and roughly what needs to be known, and then everyone taking that module could discuss various parts of the theory as specifically relates to the AS-level in the thread and work on different bits at a time. So we could move through themes of the book, talking about the various characters with particular reference to the set books, while in other modules like art and architecture or tragedy there could be similar threads. I think it'd work well and be a nice little revision experiment. Please post if you're interested or have any ideas, then when a few people have expressed interest I'll start up other posts.

Its a nice idea and I think you may find that some people may already be doing that within groups of friends. For example I do classical civ. but NOT OCR as most people do, I do AQA, and basically we have not been taught a whole module so me and a mate took half of it each and swopped notes and then compiled them if that makes sense?
It also depends in different peoples syllabi.. like is your Grek epic The Odyssey or The Iliad?
Mine is Iliad but yours is probably Odyssey?

I'm interested! Am doing OCR - Odyssey, 3 Aristophanes plays (Peace, Wasps, and Acharnians) and 3 Euripides plays (Bacchae, Hippolytus, and Medea).
