Nooooooooo I really need to go over all the vocab I hope it is an easy passage like the 2014 one about that guy with the magic voice or whatever (we did it in the mock!)

I use that! It is really good, I never really bother to much with the grammar, I mean I know the tenses and general endings and stuff but I never bother to go into declensions haha

When I did WJEC Latin Literature last year, we did one Themes paper and one Narratives paper. There are two options for each - Books and Writers or Growing up in Rome for Themes, and Ovid's Met or Tacitus' Messalina for Narratives. Are you just doing one literature exam?

You'll be fine, you get a full copy of the texts and a vocab list in the exam to help you

did ovid metamorphoses as a controlled assessment worth 50% of lit mark and i think i got a A/B on it but because im the only one doing books and writers for the exam my teacher constantly buts me down about it because he thought that was the harder paper but im doing it because i like that one more. i started memorising the texts which is helping but im dreading this exam!

I do not really know, for the mocks I literally read the English translation the night before and managed to get an A*... Not risking it for the real thing though. I have been doing revision cards on ech part and writing how characters and themes are presented and the corresponding quotes

hi i have this examination too yes i have 3 exams tomorrow (!!)


language at gcse level isnt that hard main thing is learn the vocab then you can work the rest out easier to guess grammar than guess vocab.
literature is quite hard but if ur gud at eng lit its not too bad just learn them thurorly and look on wjec clc cscp website for helps.
i use vocablary tester for mine revision helper http://www.cambridgescp.com/singles/...oc.html?u11.t#
