    The exam or the whole course? The whole course: not really
    Exams: 3/4 no, but I found the verse paper hard, mostly because I panicked...

    The paper difficulty is fine, what I struggled with at times was the amount of information we needed to memorise.

    Generally, I agree but how high will the boundaries be?

    Generally, I, and most others, thought that the first language paper seemed very easy (so annoyed I translated filia as son rather than daughter) and there was just one sentence in the second paper about an axe which had two words I had never seen before (that could be up to 5 marks lost) but it seemed OK after that. I worked really hard for the A403 prose literature and I thought it was pretty easy as I had fully memorized the whole translation off by heart. The A404 verse literature seemed generally pretty easy to me - however, I fear that I may have perhaps not answered the final question as well as I perhaps could. Did anyone else answer the final question (8-marker) on Virgil's Aeneid Book XII on the Latin Verse Literature A404 (final paper)? If so, how did you find it? Thanks.

    I did,I found both questions on the Virgil paper fairly vague though compared to ones that I'd previously practiced,so I spent a lot of time just babbling to be honest. Hopefully I be able to pick up enough makes here and there :/

    Same, I ended up saying that Aeneas wasn't a worthy winner, but was more worthy than Turnus. I got my timings all wrong and completely panicked. The other 3 papers I really didn't find too bad so like you, I hoped I've picked up enough marks here and there to make up for what I feel was a sub par verse paper. Good luck for Thursday!

    It was okay... The Virgil did take me by surprise, and I found it harder than the rest. Um... I think the other papers were the same standard as previous
