    Does anyone have any advice on reaching the A* boundary, because I'm worried I can't? Any predictions / ideas about the paper?

    Learn as much vocab as you can on Quizlet, do lots of past papers and learn grammar!
    There is a website called 'vir drinks beer' which has loads of grammar.
    Not sure what the paper is going to be like but if it's anything like how the Language 1 paper turned out then we should be fine!

    I found it quite hard as well - when I first saw the translation, I thought it was just short of impossible, but it seemed okay after I began working through it.

    Also, what did you put for the multiple choice question? I think I chose the second option, 'No one thought she had too much power', but now I'm not so sure!

    I think it was the last option because it said nonnulli which i think means "not none" so several people though she has too much hold on the emperor.

    Well, you put the right answer but imperium means power/command and not emperor, and nonnulli also means some, and teneo can in context just mean have, so it was actually quite straight forward.
