Year 10 GCSE Exams Revision Area

The GCSE Latin exam consists of 3 parts: Language (papers 1 and 2), Literature (paper 3) and Roman Sources (paper 4).

There are no commercially available revision materials, but the Cambridge Latin Course has resources which you will find useful. In particular, there is a vocabulary tester (designed for the WJEC exam, but almost exactly the same as the OCR exam), and self-directed questions / answers on the set texts Regulus and the Witches of Thessaly. Links to these sites are given below.


The GCSE requires you to answer English questions in English on a Latin passage (comprehension), and translate Latin into English.
