Since I moved in September I lost my Latin teacher so I'm doing Latin on my own. The school have entered me for it but I don't have a teacher. I'm doing ok with the language but I'm really struggling with the literature. I can translate it fine but I don't know what's expected of me in the exam.

You'll need to make notes on style for the literature, as well as knowing what it all means. Go through the texts and look for literary devices like alliteration, tricolon, anaphora etc. which you can talk about in lit crit questions ('how does the author makes this passage interesting...') and short essays (e.g. 'how does the author present x theme/character/idea). A commentary will really help with this - they're quite expensive new but incredibly useful if you're doing Latin by yourself, and you can get them fairly cheaply second hand. Which texts are you studying?

I'm doing Cicero In Verrem, Livy A History of Rome, Horace Satires, Virgil Aeneid, and Horace Odes. I'm quite pleased with the Aeneid because I'm also doing that for my Classics.
