Ive just received my results back from my Year 11 mock GCSE exams and I was made up after seeing my lowest grade to be an A (in physics) apart from the anomaly of my Latin mark. I managed to only just get a level 3 even though I had been predicted a level 9 (this was most probably down to the university style teaching style of my teacher whom lectures us rather than aiding us with the complex grammar terms). So I'm really asking for any possible revision tips/ guides/ resources that can help me brush up on my skills for the OCR GCSE Latin Language paper. Thanks for the help

Hi,

I did OCR Latin GCSE a few years ago. Is the language paper the one with the translations or the set texts?

Oh no, I remember that one being tricky. I used lots of memorization strategies to help with revision. It is much easier when you've learnt the vocab and verb endings. I used to break the vocab into chunks and practise writing them down- my mum used to test me as well. I also used a Latin vocab app where it just went through multiple choice questions. For the verb endings I used to keep chanting the endings until they were stuck in my head- when I went into the exam I wrote them down on the paper.

My mum tests me too! Can you remember what Latin app you used? Thanks for the advice anyway.

I think the one I used was called GCSE latin (it had a pic of a helmet on) or there's a OCR one that you can pay for.

If you send me a PM, I'll see what I can do. I have quite a few resources and book suggestions which might be useful for you.

In the meantime, the most important thing is to get the basics. If you don't feel confident spotting the different endings for the noun cases, then it's difficult to do more of the advanced GCSE stuff, so my suggestion would be go back to learning the grammar tables - not very fun, I know, but it massively helps when it comes to translation work.
