By any chance, DOES ANYONE KNOW THE STRUCTURE FOR THE 15 MARK. I've noticed that there is not much support online regarding this GCSE and I don't like it, however, if you've done the GCSE, any advice for what to do to Gain more marks in them ESPECIALLY THE AO2 PART BECAUSE I KNOW THE KNOWLEDGE BUT NEED MORE HELP ANALYSING IT.The MARK SCHEME also makes it A BIT HARDER FOR ME TO UNDERSTAND THE A02 AS IT CAN CHANGE. Finally, if you have any access to FULL exemplar ANSWERS b/c I CAN'T FIND THEM.

Hey! Fellow classics GCSE student here, I normally get 13-15/15 on these questions and here’s my breakdown the 15 marker:

start with an introduction, a short one will do (e.g. If the question was asking would you consider Hector, from the Iliad as a hero, you would write an introduction on what you'd classify as a hero)

Write 3-5 analytical paragraphs with evidence (can be a quote or specific action)
For paragraphs I always use the structure of PEA - point, evidence, analysis.

End with a short conclusion on which side you're on, either for or against the main question.


Good luck and wish you the best for the coming GCSEs!! :biggrin:
