Is anyone taking A2 Latin this year?
If so, does anybody have any tips for the 20 mark essay question in the Verse Literature paper?
Specifically tips on:
- Structuring the essay
- How to CAREFULLY pick a wide range of relevant points from the whole text
Any feedback from anyone who has taken Latin to A2 previously or is currently taking it would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, I'd love tips on this and the 15 markers (aaahahhhh!)
For the 20 mark ones theyre normally on a theme eg. war and peace in the aeneid, so I structure it in different ways this theme is presented like a paragraphy on the futility of war/ doomed youth, brustality of war, the role of fate, and the glory of war with an intro and conclusion. For each paragraph you need to put in a bunch of spicy quotes from important bits in the plot - including stuff in the section you're doing that you havent studied in latin
I've only just started work on the 20 markers but in the few ive done I've got above 15/20 and apparently I'm doing it right... annoying how little help there is online though
