    Hi,

    I did Latin Language 2 today, the one about Nero plotting to kill his mother. So how did everyone find it? How did you translate it? I was so confused about the stomach

    That paper was so hard it was way harder than the first language paper. I had to do my pe exam before I did Latin as well so I was so confused I translated it as 'this wounds me' bc I'm dumb

    I didn't translate that sentence right either or understand the ending :/
    Hopefully I got the rest of it right but I found it harder than the past papers I did and the Language 1 paper especially

    I agree with you but for these two lines everyone in my school put different things for these 2 lines so we were all really confused but I think those people are right.

    Don't worry that bit was confusing, what I put was a lot dumber. I wrote ' he has wounded me. Oops. Really hoping the grade boundaries are low.

    I know that was so confusing

    That was the bit I struggled on too. The two lines between after the slave girl left to the bit about the astrologers.

    My friend did some research about that bit after the exam. Apparently when the assassin found her Agrippina asked him to stab her in the stomach where her evil child had grown. How messed up is that?Here's the link (its Cassius Dio's account)

    Anyways, good luck with the next Latin exams, I do Pliny and Virgil, I hope it goes better than this one. Also good luck for all your other GCSEs.

    ikr I'm so happy to never do Latin again!

    I found the Pliny and Language 1 papers good, less happy about Language 2 and Virgil, especially Virgil with the confusing questions!

    But overall it wasn't too bad

    What about you?

    Thats exactly what I'm feeling, I liked language 1 and Pliny but I didn't like language 2 and Virgil.
