My kids are currently being homeschooled, and I'm self-teaching my daughter (Year 10) OCR GCSE Classical Civilisation at the moment using the textbook and prescribed sources etc.
She's doing it as a 1 year course, so she'll be sitting the exams in May/June 2021.
(I have an A level in Class Civ, and I did it for a year at uni as well, so I have at least some idea of what I'm dealing with.)

I'm struggling to find any past papers though to acquire for her. I know there's a specimen example paper on the OCR website for each section, but try as I might to search online I'm not finding any past papers.

I appreciate that it's a relatively recent subject, but surely there are some past papers somewhere from 2017-2019?

Does anybody know, by any chance, where I can get hold of Myth & Religion, and War & Warfare past papers?

Thank you.

That suggests to me the spec has recently changed and they removed all the previous past papers for the old spec.


Had a quick look, but I believe the modules changed.

The other place to look is TES.

I'm still not finding any past papers post 2016, and yes you're right the spec changed in 2017 so papers prior to that wouldn't be much help, but not to worry, I appreciate your help anyway.

The past papers website I'd already searched, however I hadn't seen the tes ones before. There's no past papers there, but a lot of revision resources that I didn't know about, so that'll come in handy.

Thank you, much obliged.

I have a feeling ive read lots of war and warfare papers, but might have been a different exam board. Might be worth looking those up.

There's only OCR doing GCSE Class Civ. It's not available to take under any other GCSE board, nor as an IGCSE.

I think it's AQA for A levels though (I think, don't quote me on that).

I'll look it up anyway, cheers
