Ah so that's two of us!

I've done a bit of extra reading on the Augustan regime as I felt I didn't quite understand the impact/influence of that on Virgil's work. Think I've got that now.

I've been mindmapping themes like crazy and pulling out quotes. I feel like I still need to compare / contrast the Iliad and the Aeneid a bit more - I've got the Homeric theme fixed between the two ... but are there any others?

I'm doing this A level via distance learning, so I'm on my own here! Would be good to bounce a few ideas around.

Right, I'm off back to Sanctuary at Delphi for a bit (Art & Architecture module). Will be back here soon.

Hey - I did the first question in the first section (diskobolos and artemisian Zeus), and then the second question in the second section about the portrayal of women in vase painting.

I thought the paper was ok, in the main. I liked the question about the acropolis and the propylaia in the first section, but didn't trust myself to remember the dates properly!

Which questions did you do?

same as you! took a risk by not revising temples and sanctuaries, but luckily it paid off as i'm most confident in vases and free standing sculpture definitelyy could have gone better if i had revised more but at least it's over now!

I have no idea! I'm rubbish with prediction and to a certain extent don't really trust them. I'd rather cover everything just in case. I have to say I'm not looking forward to the paper on Tuesday...

Oh dear - that sounds a bit full on!

How are you tackling last minute revision for Virgil on Tuesday? I'm trying to consolidate themes with quotes as evidence - doing a final condensing of what's in my brain. This is my last exam. Roll on 3.30 tuesday ...
