Can anyone who has done a classical civilisation a level give me insight into how they found the course? Or alternatively is there anyone else taking it as I don't seem to know many who are.

Look up exam board and then the specification.

It will be a mix of
Literature-good fun and interesting. Novels, plays (tragedy and comedy), bit of poetry.
History and sociology about ancient civilisations. Rome and Greece.

Depends on the exam board but sometimes theres a language component.

Its a cool A level and usually has small classes.

Sadly, AQA has withdrawn their Classical Civilisation course, so we're left with OCR. It would be worth seeing which modules your school/college has decided to teach, as it may be very text-heavy, and if you're not a fan of reading, it can be tough going!

I am teaching Homer's Odyssey, Greek Theatre and Love and Relationships as my three modules and really enjoying planning the course so far. Whether the students will enjoy learning about it is another matter...!
