Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific Study Help forum should help get responses.

I'm going to quote in She-Ra now so she can move your thread to the right place if it's needed. :yy:

Hi there! Yep, 5 mins for the factual questions, 15 mins for the 10 marker, 25 mins for the 20 marker and 40 mins for the 40 marker (+5 mins to plan) so it's just over a mark a minute. I'm really nervous too! Which context questions do you think you will tackle? I prefer Aeschylus so I'm going to do that whatever happens, I'm not good on Herodotus other than for the themes for the 40 marker, it's too factual!
