    Classical Civilisations is one of the A-Levels I have chosen to begin this September. It is a new topic for me but I am looking forward to it for that reason. I've also heard that, at least in my school, it isn't a widely chosen option and therefore classes tend to be very small. The small class idea attracts me because of the more personally targeted teaching that will hopefully become of its unpopularity. However I've not had the chance to speak to very many people who do it because it isn't so popular but also merely due to circumstance, and would therefore like to ask anybody who has any sort of knowledge on the subject to give me some more detail about what it's like to study and any advice they may have. You may feel that I could get such information from my school teachers, and I have as far as possible, but I would like a different perspective. If anybody wants to know the exam board I can certainly find out.

    I'm a Classics teacher, so you may be looking more specifically for a student perspective, but I am more than happy to offer help/advice if you'd like.
