We're doing Caesar, Tacitus and Cicero for the Prose, but we haven't even finished them yet! I can't believe all the exams are so close together! (For me they're all within a week of each other)

This website is pretty good for Virgil: www.classicstuition.com
It needs a school email address to register. No Messalina unfortunately, but it's better than nothing.

to remember it, just take it paragraph by paragraph, and rewrite it. It works best on Notepad, because you can see any mistakes.

I've been after one of these threads for ages but I've been too scared to start one myself haha..
I'm doing:
Verse: Catullus/Ovid
Prose: Messalina/Ummidia

How do people find Messalina... god I can't wait for it to be over. I have a mock on the prose on Monday and I haven't even looked at it yet.

This website http://www.classicalbooks.co.uk/workbooks has useful guides for the GCSE set texts, priced relatively reasonably at around £10 or so. There is also another website - https://zigzageducation.co.uk/subjec...GCSE_OCR_Latin - but at £50/£60 per booklet, they are quite expensive. This is because they are designed for school use, so are exempt from copyright, meaning that teachers can photocopy as many copies as they need for the class.

I'm really worried about the Aeneid as I had to learn it myself, so I don't know any of the discussion points on content (i.e. 8 mark questions). Have you discussed anything in class as I have no idea?!
We've annotated the whole passage very thoroughly if you want me to post my notes?
