    So I am studying Classics at GCSE. We did the Sparta topic and I found the 30 marker relatively easy to write about, as it was explaining basic facts the whole time throughout. However we just got given a 30 marker for the Odyssey :
    ‘The gods are by far the most interesting characters in books 5-7 of the Odyssey.’ To what extent do you agree with this statement? '

    and I am struggling so hard with it! I have absolutely no clue how to do it in order to maximise my marks. Generally my essay technique is absolutely......waffle waffle and waffle. Recently I do well in essay writing in history + English (100%s) ..but in Classics the most I even got was 98% and that was in SParta...I really do not want 50!

    Please help!
