Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you've posted in the right place? Here's a link to our subject forum which should help get you more responses if you post there.

You can also find the Exam Thread list for A-levels here and GCSE here. :dumbells:

Is it Latin Language or Literature or both? I'm doing both, and I can provide some suggestions for either if you want.

You might have heard some of this before and you might be doing an exam board other than OCR, but here are some suggestions:

Do plenty of translation, make sure you can translate quickly and efficiently. I would recommend translating Cicero texts, if you have them.

Look over vocabulary. OCR has a vocabulary sheet at their website which contains words they might use (link below). I'm not sure about this, but even if you're doing something different than OCR you might want to use this (the exam boards are in my opinion probably going to use a lot of similar vocabulary) or look for a similar one for your exam board.

Do past papers, and look over mark schemes and examiner reports (these are also at the OCR link).

http://www.ocr.org.uk/qualifications...tin-h039-h439/

I hope these help a little and good luck with the exam.

Hi, I'm taking Latin AS this year and have found that being confident with the grammatical constructions has really helped.
Knowing uses of the subjunctive, cases of time clauses, indirect statements etc. has really helped my translation to be more accurate.

Hope this helps and good luck!!

It was rather easy for me. Some constructions I had to look over twice, and I quibbled over some of the words, but it was fine.

Overall it was okay,however a few sentences confused me. There was this word in the 3rd sentence I didn't know the meaning of-Cessit or something?(the sentence about the Romans going to lots of Roman cities)

Did you do section 2 or 3?

I'm not going into specifics (some people may perhaps still be sitting the exam) but that is a difficult word (I only remembered it because I looked over the OCR vocabulary before the exam). I did both sections, but I ultimately chose to put in section 2.

I found it quite difficult, there were quite a few parts of the translation I just didn't understand, and I did p3, I thought the English to Latin sentences were very hard compared to past papers. Overall this exam was the hardest ocr have given.

I agree the E into L sentences were more difficult than previous ones, but hopefully I managed to score decently.

No, can't remember the actual translation unfortunately. Which parts did you struggle with?

I did the Cicero section. Honestly, I don't know where to start it was all so difficult. For section 1, did the citizens cry? What was the whole bit about when they saw that the king was crying?

The content was a bit confusing, I agree. Consider that kings were absolute rulers. To see a king cry probably signified that there was no hope left. I'm really not entirely sure, though.

Something I've just thought of: iff anyone remembers the precise section of Livy, you can probably look it up. Useful to compare translations.

I did section 2. For section 1, What were the roman cities doing? And what was the bit in the direct speech? It started with an imperative i think?
