    Hi, If there's anyone here who took/is taking classical civilisation GCSE (ocr exam board) I was wondering if you could tell me a bit about it as I'm currently choosing my GCSE options and am wondering whether to take it or not. Is it hard? Do you recommend it? I know the examination for it involves many 15 and 30-mark questions which is the main reason why I'm hesitant to take classiv, but how do you find these exam questions? Are they as bad as they seem? Thanks

    ok, class civ bangsssss. ngl, i was hesitant in year 9 cause i'd never done it before so i was wondering if i was going to flop...NAH B

    lol, maybe it's cause my Classics teacher actually loves the subject so much, my man really wrote the spec/exams for your year. but it's really easy if you actually pay attention and are interested in the subject. the exams are a breeze if you know what you're talking about, just pray you get a teacher that actually likes the subject they teach, otherwise....

    I love Class Civ!!! It's probably my favourite subject because it's mostly Ancient History and stuff You'll be doing the new spec but my teacher says she actually likes it a lot more and thinks it's way more interesting!!
