Yeah thank you, I’m aware of that site but I need other resources too so was hoping others could give me info that is OCR related if you get me. Appreciate the help

Ancient History isnt exactly popular

You really needed to have bought the textbooks and made your own notes and used them in conjunction with the specification.
There are plenty of general websites on History. Sometimes you just have to do the research.
It is the way I would have approached it. Noy everything is going to be served on a plate with an OCR ribbon.

Alright alright, it’s called being efficient, there may be students who do OCR here and I can get resources, there’s no harm in asking. I’ve been doing my research aswell.

I’ve also contacted OCR and they said they don’t have a revision guide for the specification I did

Youve had nearly 2 years to make yourself a set of notes. If it was a niche subject, then you should have identified the textbooks you needed.
There are history books out there on Rome and Greece that just arent labeled for OCR. that is why you use the specification.



Unit A032: Option 1: The origins of Rome: The kings, 753–508 BC

The set sources for this option are; Livy, The History of Rome Preface; Livy, The History of Rome 1.3-29, 1.39-40, 1.49-59; Virgil, Aeneid Book 1, 1-11; Book 6, 752-859 and Book 8, 626-651. We have also translated Livy 1.1 – 1.2. This is not part of the sources set for this option, however it may be useful as background and context, and for this reason it has been included here. It is in italics to make clear that it is not part of the set sources. Candidates are only expected to have studied the set sources and are not required to study this extra section, though it may be useful as background and context.

There is no harm in asking, but when you do a niche subject you should know specialised resources are going to be rarer.

Hey that's unnecessarily mean- the course this person is doing doesn't have a textbook and is one of the legacy gcses, that textbook is for the new specification NOT the one for Agrippina and the Rise of Rome.
personally I recommend listening to the in our time podcast, they have a great one on Agrippina as well as Romulus and Remus

Not sure how it is mean to point out you are responsible for your own research and that if it isnt all in a nice bundle then there will be plenty of small ancient history texts on the subject. In such a situation the specification and the teacher are your friends. Hardly the first time someone has studied the Rise of Rome or Agrippina..

He’s has a valid point, you have to do research yourself, however, like I said it’s about efficiency and somebody from the student room kindly sent me ( who studies ocr ancient history) their schools notes and this saved me time, so it worked out.

Glad it worked out for you, but I would never put myself in a position where I have had 2 years for a course and I was begging student room for a copy of theirs.
Part of revision is doing the research and making your own notes, be there an official textbook or not.

Which I did, I did actively found my own sources and did research. But it’s also best to get resources of others to further confirm that the information I’ve got is legit. You do realise there is fake information on the internet which is not reliable and if I put the wrong information in = lost marks.

Teachers who’ve taught the subjects know the specification well, are professional in the subject that area. I It’s not begging, the student room is for help.
