Same! I'm doing Roman Britain for the second exam and I feel more confident for Sparta, (probably because we have to remember archeology for Roman Britain and know about walls -___-)

I hope the questions are nice too! Last year, one of the 45 markers were on helots and periokoi and I seriously would've loved to have that question!

Wishing for the essay question to be on one of the political bodies

Oh Lord, foreign policy would be my worst question! I only know two sources that relate to foreign policy 😂 religion and Lycurgus is also one of my weaknesses 😓

I think war questions would be okay! Talk a bit about the Spartan Military (I don't like that topic :/), the Spartan Mirage and the Agoge. Also about Sparta's successes and defeats

Nope don't worry!! Definitely not a 45 marker though. Maybe about their belief in gods and stuff! Haha, good luck!!

I predicted the ephors would come up!!! I loved the essay question but didn't like the context question. I made the mistake of choosing women (my weakest topic) over than the Spartan mirage (one of my best).

I chose women first because I didn't realise the other questions were on the Spartan mirage until after the exam 😂😂

Overall I don't feel that confident for Sparta I made so many stupid mistakes haha hopefully I can redeem myself on roman Britain (probably not). lol, what about you?

aww im sure you did great! I picked women and was very happy with it but then I realised I did repeat myself in both questions b and c abit as they where quite similar, but I did the part c in my mock that my teacher made! And my grade will defff be brought down by the rome part which Is a shame because I find it more interesting... need to start revising lol!

Yeah roman Britain is definitely my weakest topic, need to start focusing and remembering the governors' names and dates :/ good luck!
