What details in Virgil’s portrayal of the fall of Troy strike you as particularly tragic?

-Hecuba and her daughter huddled together like dovesdriven in a black storm helpless feel sorry for them

-Polites fleeing form the slaughter of Pyrrhus façade of maybe he will escape until Virgil points out he is wounded showing the audience that Polites has no chance in escaping

-Priams death – we knew from the minitu he through down his unwarlike weapon he was about to die.head torn from shoulder a body without a name he was once a proud ruler than suddenly he has no head shows his loss in identity after him being killed

-Creusa dying then turning into a ghost it was fate she had to die for Aeneas to progress and be more heroic even though her death was tragic it was destined to happen

-1 point to disagree talk about the heroism shown by aneas leading his family away from danger. Family togetherness come dear father. Little lullus will walk by him

-The ring composition started with Priam’s seeing the fall of the city then we end with Priam seeing troy set on fire. Connects to Priam’s fall to the fall of his city and evokes pathos for him.
- he creates it as Tragic as Priam was once a proud ruler of Asia and saw the fall of troy and now,
he is a body without a name he has lost all identity
-Aeneas protecting his family in need he himself is sacred everything little thing frightened me but is still willing to protect his family
-Hecuba protecting her daughters feel sorry for them

-Pyrrhus killing Polites burning Pyrrhus peruses show his violent nature and the terrible situation that Polites is in

-The death of Polites evoke sympathy towards priam bc even after the death of his son he was still angry

-Priams death very vivid descrition of his death Pyrrhus tell him to be a messenger to his father bascally telling him he is going to die

-Aeneas carrying his father on his back having his son next to him shows there together Priam’s willingness to protect his family

-Aeneas not wanting to hold the statues god until he has washed his hnads shows how much valially he has ?

I mean, that seems like enough points?
Has your teacher given you guidance on how many points you need for a 10 marker and the level of detail needed (eg if you need to quote in Latin)? It's been quite a while since I did GCSE Latin but I can't imagine you'd need more than the 8 or so you have here, then it's just structuring it to make sure you can access all the marks. Looking at example essays from the exam board can help too?

well she says we should right 6 point per question and we dont have to quote the latin we just have to quote the english. The example esaays that we were shown dont go for my text so it a bit confusing

Okay, that's a good start - have you tried writing out an essay with 6 of these points, backed up by a quote in English, for her to mark? She can probably then give you more guidance.
I'd look at example essays not as a source of content but an example of essay structure - can you see how they embed quotes, how long each point is, how many points per essay etc?

Maybe worth writing it down next time Or see if rereading that essay kickstarts anything.
Example essays are often very helpful - also, writing this essay is still a learning opportunity, so make sure to get feedback
