    This was absolutely no help whatsoever. Do u know what to do, just read through all the notes that ur teacher has given u. I did this for both exams and i know 1000 percent that i got a grade 6/7 or above. It is the best way to pass ur exams and get a high grade, and i am talking from experience. Your teacher would have given u all the notes for the specification. Hope that was helpfull. ☺☺
    Ask me if u want me to send u my notes. Ive gotta admit they are really good. My teacher made exam questions for the whole specification and answered them for us. If u could send me ur email that would be good. Depends what topic ur doing tho.😶

    Was just reading through the spec on the AQA website (unit 3C-Greek Tragedy) and it says something about dramatic techniques. Just wondering what kind of thing this included, obviously there is dramatic irony and I’ve done the past paper question on that but was just wondering what the others were, if there are any

    Dramatic techniques are something similar to author's methods - allegory, songs, metaphors, references to historical context/people etc. It could also be naming what does the character's name mean and does it reference anything in their storyline/the events of the play?

    I'll be so grateful if there's one on the Chorus though

    Greek Tragedy.. what is everyone saying. I did the Medea context which was really good but think I misinterpreted the oikos one and didn’t realise till I was half way through. Didn’t understand the bit about political something

    I have friends who sat it - their reactions were mixed; not everyone was expecting the Ara Pacis 2 papers in a row.

    I thought the ara pacis source was a sly move considering it was on the 2017 paper, I did option b because the 20 marker was really nice. I’m a bit annoyed with myself for not doing the forum of Augustus, what did everyone else put for the 40marker on the reforms of the gpvernent and respect for the past?

    Hey! I did section B and then section C. I wrote the date for the battle 42BC and Phillpi which I know is completely wrong.... what did you put? but the 20 marker was great! I write how Augustus violated the cursus Horoum etc. For the 40 marker I broke it down into 4 sections. I wrote he respected the past though religious reform and his respect for the senate but on the other hand he violated it though the cursus hororum and the use of the equestrians. What about everyone else?😌

    Ok that’s a bit of a relief, wasnt sure if I was on track, I essentially did the same with respect for the senate, solutions to problems with new concepts like handling grain supply/ equestrian procurators and manipulating the Curus honorum. Annoyed that I forgot religion!
