Hello,

Does anyone know if there are any good websites for Classical Civlisation revision. There is a website I've been using for my other subjects (Science, English, Sociology etc) called Seneca. However, it does not have Classics as a course.

I'm currently supposed to be doing my GCSEs but obviously because of the Coronavirus they have been cancelled. I know I am going to do Classics next year (Year 12 - A Level) so both my teacher's and I thought we might as well do some preparation for that.

So I am looking for some websites like Seneca that actually do the A Level course. Does anyone know any good ones?

Sorry this is really long but I'd appreciate it if someone could help me

Thank you.

Hi I'm in the same boat as you.
I currently already study it at GCSE and am doing it at A-Level.
In terms of preparation for A-levels depending on what your doing on your course finding any articles and podcasts on the relevant subject areas would be great.
This is taken from my future college's starting with confidence page (some of this may not be useful for you if you are studying different subject areas) I have highlighted in bold the stuff that will be most helpful as they are resources for the compulsory module
