My grade changes literally every translation and a terrible verse will be my downfall. I’ve just been trying to do as many translations and learn all the vocab and grammar. It’s just so annoying when you come across so many new words!

Yeah literally the amount of Ovid metamorphoses translations I’ve done I’ll be so happy if one comes up that I recognise😂 I always count on lit to pull up my grade but hopefully all the vocab learning has been worth it and actually helps even though it’s probably going to be very bad. Good luck!!

No you are not you just need to believe in yourself. Learn the style points and don’t waffle. And Pagasus is the best.

It's so infuriating the amount of vocab in past paper unseens which include so much vocab that we not only don't know but have no chance of being able to work out. How are people doing in unseen past papers? I've done the June 2019 one and the November 2020 one and got around 58-60% each time. Bit worried it won't be enough for an A.

Are you learning the as OCR vocab list, exegi monumentum and 300 verse common words? I’m writing down any new vocab I come across but there’s just so many new ones in every translation

I am learning the OCR AS vocab list for Prose and the verse vocab lists at the back of the Ovid unseens book. Haven't come across exegi monumentum yet. I think writing down new words is a good idea but I don't know if I'll have time to learn them all, there are so many.

I found Prose pretty good actually, although in verse I think I slightly mistranslated a huge swathe of the middle of it, but i'm pretty sure i got the gist of both of them. Were quite difficult though. And scansion was fine I think. How did everyone else find it

I found it relatively ok, there were a couple lines of verse I couldn't make sense of but I think the prose went well and was as a whole slightly easier than some of the past papers from recent years, hope everyone did ok x

I guessed some of the middle feet in the scansion, but ended up with 6 feet in each line at least.I think both translation went well, but depends what they consider a minor or major error in some parts

Quite happy with the prose- there wasn’t much tricky vocab in either translation. The time went so quickly so had to rush the middle speech part of the verse which was quite confusing anyway but not terrible overall and the unseen is definitely my weakest paper!

How did people find today's exam? (Or is there another thread for that?) Did you do composition or comprehension?

I did prose comp, and thought it mainly went okay, but I messed around with the English in places I forgot the words

Did the comprehension. Found it decent and pretty good to make sense of but don’t wanna jinx anything.😂
