    Hi there! I'm not sure if this is in the right thread but let me know if I need to move it elsewhere.

    This year, I'm studying the Cambridge IGCSE Latin course and my exams begin in late May. I was wondering if any of you have any advice on how to revise - in particular, for the literature paper.

    I seem to be relatively okay with the unseen texts (my vocab needs a bit of TLC but I can handle that) but I'm struggling with the Aeneid Book XII at the moment. I totally get the story and Virgil's use of metaphors and personification, etc, but the actual translations just leave me feeling hopeless.

    I'm interested in how you guys revised and if you have any tips. At the moment, I've been trying to write out the text and my teacher gives me a weekly test in translating specific lines, but even then I'm struggling due to the sheer diversity of vocabulary and the alien nature of many of Virgil's analogies.

    Much appreciated, everyone!
