Classics A level - no vocab listWatch this thread
This is scaring me a bit - could they in theory ask you any vocabulary? That seems overly extensive, but I don't know...
Also, why would they not make a list? Is there any particular skill they want to promote by leaving this open?
I would be most grateful for any responses.
If you look at some of the A-level past papers, there is still a vocab list for the unseen passages with lots of obscure words ("woo", "lamp", even "neighbouring") - so I doubt you'd be expected to know absolute loads of rare words so don't worry too much about it. The specification also suggests that they'll build on the GCSE/AS defined vocab lists so look at those and also learn some common words in any texts that you study; if anything crops up which you haven't seen before, most of the candidates probably won't have a clue too. And what with COVID, I don't think they'll be putting anything too challenging on the next few papers in terms of vocab!
