Hi there, I'm self-studying the OCR Classical Civilisation A Level to sit next year, subject to pandemic ofc.
Anyway, I've been really struggling with the "modern scholars" requirement to the longer essays - there's little to no indication of what you need to read or quote! Getting pretty frustrated and just wondered if there's some sort of "cheat sheet" of basic quotes and such I can just insert into any essay. Losing my mind reading all these long-winded articles!
The modules I'm doing are the Odyssey, Aeneid, Greek theatre and Greek religion ones, btw - for Greek religion in particular any quotes/resources would be useful.
Thanks, Yewfelle

Hi, I'm doing all the same modules apart from greek religion. My teacher often gives us articles to highlight/select modern scholarship from, which I think she gets from Omnibus magazine. If thats what youve been doing/is too long, she told us that anything from the textbook counts as modern scholarship, just write the scholar as the author, and also any analysis from the books/plays that we study (at the front of the book etc.) can also be used. Its really easy to take from the textbooks because any sentence basically sounds like an idea, and you can quickly find the section you need the scholarship on. Off the top of my head I remember using scholars like Hall, Jones, Jenkyns - I still need to memorise a lot!
Hope that helps
