I did Latin GCSE in June (last year now). The first language paper was easy, the second wasn't as hard as I was expecting either (though I say that not knowing whether I translated anything incorrectly!). Prose was easy, verse not so much (though I'd hardly done any proper past papers b/c the set texts were new so there weren't any verse ones - it was Virgil.). I hadn't practised the mini essays at the end but they weren't expecting anything too complex, and I'd already done English lit.
Revision - learn the vocab. and practice translating constructions. There'll be some words you could translate two ways, e.g. malo.
For the set texts, learn the English translation of the texts and know how each word contributes to the meaning. I printed off the set texts and wrote the translation in and connected the translated words to the Latin words.

I did the 2016 paper and got an A* overall, i found that all the practice paper I did were far harder than my actual exam!

my most important revision tip is to drill in your grammar, like DRILL, i jumped into latin the year before GCSE without any experience before and ended up getting 100% in one of my language papers- all because my teacher chiseled away at my sanity until my grammar was pinned down

Thank you! I did the first paper. I finished it way too early for my liking, but I guess it's done. Now I have the paper 2 and Prose tomorrow. We have a verse later on. Our prose is Pliny and Tacitus. Any tips on what to do the night before haha. Our verse is Virgil. If you remember the actual story and can explain, I'd be grateful cause I have no idea about it
