A Level Latin?Watch
I'm studying Latin for GCSE, the Cambridge Course and the exam board is WJEC. My exams are this year, last year I did a half GCSE (I think that's what my teacher called it) and I got an A. I enjoy Latin and I was wondering how much more difficult an A Level would be as I would like to carry on studying it! I'm good with learning vocab, it's just grammar I have a pain with.
If you did Latin at A Level would you recommend it and how different was it to GCSE Level?
Thanks in advance!
Chances are the speaking and writing segments will be longer pieces and the other exams will be more complex with a higher breadth of vocabulary and such.
As you're doing WJEC at the moment, there's a possibility you might not have studied set texts before (WJEC offer two separate Latin qualifications - Latin Language and Latin Literature - both of which are the equivalent of 1 GCSE). If you haven't done any set texts before, then this might be the biggest change you'll find, as you'll start reading authors in the original Latin, which can be quite tricky until you get used to it.
Nonetheless, if you keep up to speed with the grammar and vocab, the set texts hopefully won't prove too much of a challenge.
