salve everyone !! couldn't find an ocr gcse latin thread for this year so i thought i'd make one.

you can reply to this with which prose and verse texts you're doing ! i'm doing the druids and boudicca for prose, and the aeneid books 4 and 6 for verse.

also, if anyone has any revision tips for latin please let us know !

Done the GCSE last year, with the exact same texts as yourself. Good luck; any questions don't hesitate to ask.

Does anyone have any notes on Boudica and Druids? Or a summary of each as I struggle to understand what is happening in them. Thanks

hey - I have a Mock for the Druid’s and Boudica texts in a few weeks. I was wondering, do you remember what the questions for that paper was, if there’s any tips for them? Much appreciated!

hey! i did that mock in january - if you're doing last year's paper, then your translation bit starts off about suetonius and the 14th legion and the 10 marker is 'how are britons are presented?' my tip is just memorise the texts as fully as you can and learn some style notes because you will be asked about them a lot! good luck

Strongly agree; knowing the text inside out should be first priority. Then treat it like an English language passage if need be.

Treat it like English Literature; try to identify thematic links, and show to the examiner that you know the WHOLE story well - whilst you don't have to have quotes, I found it helped to create a 'cohesive' response - try, if you can, to make reference to each part of the story, beginning, middle and end - and show progression throughout.

I’m doing Dido and Aeneas (starts with Aeneas being out of his mind and then telling Dido he’s going to Italy). Is anyone else doing this? Do you have good notes?

Hey for the Language paper, my teacher has been telling us that we can answer both question 10 and question 11 as she went on a course where the examiner told them that people would mark both and give the student the highest mark out of the two questions. Has anyone else been told this because I'm nervous to answer both questions in case the examiner decides not to mark either? x

Correct. Above is from the OCR's Examiners' Report - although when I did the GCSE last year, I didn't bother.

My teacher said I could do this as well but she said it’s probably best to do the one you know you will get most marks on and keep your time for the translation or checking through the paper.
