    Hi so am I!
    What are you doing?
    I'm doing Pompeii, Athens and Ovid
    I would recommend doing lots of past questions and make sure you answer the AO3 part of the essay question (hope that makes sense)
    Good luck! Xx

    I'm doing the same three as you! I've printed off and am working through all the a b c questions from all the topics and I have revision notes but I'm nervous about the essays! xx

    It sounds like you're on the right track to get an A*! As long as you know the stuff and are confident there's nothing stopping you getting a good mark in the big essays! They might seem confusing but once you break it down they're actually pretty ok Doing a quick plan can often help Just make sure you really get your point across
    And save enough time for them! In mocks ,I've only left 20-25 mins for the 30 markers and that's not really enough! Xxx
