    Hey guys- I'm doing Pliny as part of my A2 Latin course- the 7 letters prescribed for the Prose exam literature. I'm semi-self teaching this and am not sure how the second part works, as they've never done these letters before.
    So for part B of the exam, you have two questions. In all the past papers, both sections are focussed on specific passages rather than the first question (3A/4A) on a passage and the second (3B/4B) as a general look like the Verse paper has.
    I'm wondering whether this format is the same this year, or whether 3B will be focussed on an entire letter rather than a passage. Can anyone who is studying this in school and knows how the second part will be formatted help me?

    Sorry for the long post, and thank you so much to anyone who can help!!

    Hello, I am doing A2 Latin also. The prose paper starts off with an unseen translation and comprehension (Livy that is) and then we are given two 'passages' from either the Pliny letters that we have studied throughout the year or the other writer which i cannot recall. They are always passages, unless the letter is really short, such as 'At The Races'. Hope this helped!

    How hard is A2 after AS? Surely that unseen translation is so hard?
