I noticed there was no forum for OCR Latin GCSE for this year. What set texts is everyone doing?

Ummidia Quadratilla (from Pliny's 3 feminae) and Messalina (Tacitus) for prose, and some assorted Catullus stuff and ars amatoria (Ovid) for verse.

Nice to see other people doing Latin how are you preparing for it?

For language I'm doing past papers and using quizlet to revise all the vocab.

For set texts, I'm learning the translation off by heart and at least 5 content points and 5 style points for each section.

By the way I'm also doing Messalina and Ummidia, but I'm doing Virgil's Aeneid 1 for verse

I Met my Latin teacher for the last ever time today (yay!) but she still didn't give me any points to talk about in the 8/10 markers for Ummidia and Messalina. What exactly do I talk about as I have no analysis?
How are you guys all finding Latin?

It was all fairly straightforward for Messalina and Ummidia Quadratillae I thought. The 8-marker was an easy one too.

Yh I did Messalina and Ummidia
I thought that the timing was fine - I just think we are expected to know the texts really well, to be able to write quickly about them.
It was a good exam I found with straightforward questions.
I made 6 points
5 is fine tho

Did anyone else do the Caesar/Tacitus/Cicero for the set text this morning? I found the paper went really well but I didn't expect that 10 marker passage to come up at all! I think I still made some okay points though. 8 marker was also very easy.

Me! I found it difficult for the 10 marker I talked about the bodies of the baggage animals (lol!) and the destruction wrought by the cavalry and how they were blocked by the baggage animals and that's it that is 3 points for a 10 mark and I absolutely cried after the exam and for the 8 mark I did bravery in the pullo one how Caesar promotes them as brave and then I did how each rival saved the other loyalty and **** and then I did how Caesar expresses the skills gained through long experience then I went on to Tacitus but my points were **** coz I had 5 minutes left and I stopped the Tacitus point in mid line because stupid invigilator was like
