Couldn't find a thread on it so wondering if anyone else has recently sat the WJEC Latin exam

How did you find it? Is there anyone else actually doing it?!

I thought the language paper was pretty easy but the civilization one confused me a fair bit. For the civilization did you do army or entertainment?

I do indeed,

It roughly works out at 50% pass (C) 60% B 70% A 80% A* and less than 50% is a U

thank you.
for the language i had i had the exam paper 9521
and for the additional latin paper i had 9524. did we have the same exam papers?
anything lower than a C is a fail right?
i thought the language paper was a lot easier than the additional one we had today

Yes anything lower than a C is a fail.

We did slightly different papers - we both sat the same first one, although the second paper (the 50 marker) is either a civilization paper or an additional language one. I did the civilization which was pretty hard

I did 9521 and 9522. 9522 the Civilization paper

Yea looked it, saw another 150 words as well as the original 400 to learn :O

I'm not my school doesn't offer it which is a shame Would have liked to though.

Not sure about you but I'm taking my Latin outside of school hours (lunch and after school sessions) so while I won't exactly be happy with a C... As long as I pass I really don't mind. But I'd prefer an A/B. What you aiming for?

same, i do it in weekly after school sessions. I'm not taking it next year either, thought about it a while ago but decided not to.
Realistically with latin I will be happy with a B.
hope you do well!

Same here with the targets, if I get a B I'll be happy. And yourself - good luck!
