A2 AQA Classical Civiolisation Tiberius and Claudius June 12thWatch
We had a good thread going about Greek Tragedy and a couple of people asked whether anyone was taking the Tiberius and Claudius paper on Thursday... no one answered so I thought it would be useful to start this thread explicitly. Anyone got any thoughts re pitfalls?
The 40 mark on influence was lovely, but the rest made me want to cry. I ended up doing Tiberius because even though I was pretty sure the extract for Claudius was about Gauls in the senate, I wasn't 100%. I did struggle to think of examples of either being influenced from Suetonius though.
The twenty mark questions were horrendous; I knew the extract it came from, but wasn't quite sure what to say for the answer - how important was it? "Well... it wasn't particularly important at all for his relations with the Senate..." was all I could think of --- but that isn't 20 marks!!!
