Hello everybody!

I hope that all of your exams went well. I opted for the Pliny half of the paper which included 3 extracts from Avunculus Meus 1&2 and Arria. Struggled a little bit on the 8 marker to do literary analysis..What did you all do?

Good luck with the Poetry exam on Thursday afternoon?

Ps. was huic referring to her son..?

You don't have to analyse his language do you? I'm not sure you have to to get full marks.

I put that for huic as well.

I came out paranoid that I skipped a page (but I don't actually know) because the test felt a little shorter than normal - can you remember any little questions so I can check that I did them? It would be so helpful - I'm pretty stressed!

Good luck with Thursday's paper!

50 marks in total - the first 9 mark were to do with the extracts of the day in the life on pliny the elder.
Afterwards was about the death of pliny the elder which included the 10 mark essay and a further 10 marks in short-answer questions.
Following this was the 8 mark essay about how pliny the elder was presented as admirable.
Finally it was the questions about Arria (roughly 13 marks?)which ended with a four mark question asking you to make two bullets and reference the Latin.

These are not the exact questions but very similar:
1) Why did Pliny the younger choose not to go with his Uncle? (1)

2) Why was Rectina in danger? Give two points (2)

3) How did she convince Pliny to come save her? (1)


4) illic nox omnibus noctibus nigrior densiorque - How does Pliny emphasise the darkness: Give two bullet points and refer to the Latin. (4)

5) What would Pliny be using "faces" for? - (1)

6) placuit egredi in latus, et ex proximo ad spicere, num mare fugare praeberat.
a) Where was Pliny the Older off to? (1)

b) Why was he going there? (2)

Actually maybe I did I'm not sure...oh I'm so stressed! If I do very well in both languages and Aeneid, is it still possible for me to get an A* overall if I get an A in this paper?

Thank you so much for replying

I phrased them slightly differently but yes it's still possible but it really depends on how well you did in the languages and will do in Aenied

Pretty sure language went well (how about you?) and I enjoy the Aeneid - so hopefully that's okay...

One last question, and then I'll stop bothering you! Were the Arria questions just over two pages (one on the right hand side, then one on the final left hand side)?

Haha it's fine, I know how it much sucks being unsure whether you answered everything correctly and whether you answered the whole paper - it's why people make unofficial mark schemes for that peace of mind.

Yeah, the language papers went ok and Arria questions were just over two pages, like you said, with only one four-mark question being on the final page.

Can anyone remember the Arria questions so we can do an unofficial markscheme?
