    I can't remember all the questions. I think the ten pointers were something like: 'how does Cicero attack the conduct of officials and commanders other than Pompey?' and 'what impression of Bacchus does Ovid present?'.

    It might have been actually.

    I thought it could've been 'non modo'(not only) cause that highlights how Pompey was definitely better than all the men of his time, and also of the past.
    Unus probably makes more sense though
    I put unus but I translated it as alone- do you think this is right??

    Unus is translated as alone in that section, so if 'unus' is the word they're looking for then it'd be right

    Does anyone else think 80% is too high? I mean, the content of the subject is far more than most? Surely?

    I think last year it was 76/100 for an A on the lit paper, and 80/100 on language

    Oh, the "who were the two sets of people Pompey surpassed" one? I put the answer down as "those who live now and the memories of old/people in the past" or something.

    Ah yeah, for some reason that one threw me! I think I wrote 'generals, and citizens'

    For the ovid translation, would I lose a mark for keeping Liber as Liber instead of changing it to Bacchus? Liber is another name for Bacchus so I just left it

    Where was the Cicero Latin-English translation taken from? Could you tell me where in the text it was?

    Part 27/28

    The part that goes ' what reason is there that could make anyone have doubt in their mind......'

    It was right at the start. But now, when there is Gn Pompey alone....

    Sorry, I can't remember where it was from. I know I saw sections that were in the late 30s (maybe 36-38), but that section didn't have the translation question. I have a vague recollection of seeing sections 28-30, but that may have been from the 2015 paper, not the 2016 paper (the one we just did). My memory is just going blank.

    Edit: everyone else seems to be confirming sections 28-30 or thereabouts, so that's it. Now I actually remember, there was a style essay for that.

    Actually I think teenhorrorstory is right. Sorry
