GCSE Ancient Greek 2015Watch
Long story short ,I persuaded my teacher to let me do it this year. I will have 1h of Greek a week and in that time I need to learn all the grammer and set texts (which I know from Latin take aaaages!) Over the summer I have sort of learned the Vocab list but I'm still not that confident. I want to know if anyone thinks this is possible or whether I should not do the A Level.
I LOVE Greek and I think I am fairly good at it, and I have dropped a few subjects in order to give it more focus this year...but am I being unrealistic?
Thanks in advance for any advice
Also note that you don't have to do a GCSE in Greek to do the AS (my school only offered the AS, so I'll admit I didn't do the GCSE nor do I know anyone who did). I'd also recommend looking into the JACT Greek Summer School (which is pretty expensive but very good) if you'd like to be more confident in your Greek.
No university requires Greek A-level if you have Latin though (even Oxbridge), so if you feel you can't cope with doing a GCSE on 1hr a week for a year, you could always decide to do the exam a year later and it won't disadvantage you in any way.
I went from complete beginner to slightly under AS standard on 2hrs a week in a year, so I don't think it's impossible at all, especially if you work hard. Good luck!
