I've been studying the politics of the late republic module in classics for quite a few weeks and I'm just not understanding it at all! I'm struggling with how to revise and just all the different people involved! I was wondering if anyone had any revision resources that could help or even some tips on how to revise the module?

One thing that I would definitely recommend doing (if you haven't already) is making a timeline. I get my students to make it fairly big by sellotaping several sheets of A3 paper together. This will enable you to plot key dates on it to try to get some sort of idea of how all the elements in the specification interlink with each other. There is a basic timeline on pages 97-100 in the red-and-black textbook by Bloomsbury which we use as a starting point and then 'flesh out' as we go through the course.

I would also recommend doing as much secondary reading as you can (not least because you'll need to refer to some of this in your 30-mark essay) as this will help to consolidate what was happening across the time period and the involvement of all the various figures that you'll have been learning about in class.

Feel free to send me a private message if you'd like more suggestions.

Thank you so much! I'll definitely do that as I made a timeline but I don't feel like it has enough detail and I'd rather just start again from scratch with it.
Once again thank you for your help!
