+ any other tips?

Lots? :rofl: I'd start with knowing your vocab list well, and then you'll need to learn idiosyncratic vocab in your set texts too. You'll probably end up learning 50-100 words (if not more, my teachers probably took us up to 200) a week with regular testing so as long as you do actually try and learn them for the test you'll probably end up doing fine.

Other tips: - do actually do the regularly set work each week, don't go 'oh haha of course I know my subjunctives' and then...you don't
- read around, read all of the Aeneid and Iliad at least (then you have context and it's great)
- learn your set texts properly and revise them regularly
- take regular naps and eat nice food, also have coffee before long translations if you do coffee

Disclaimer: I did Latin Pre-U so A level may be slightly different but I imagine the basics are the same
