The Eduqas Component 2 Literaure and Sources (Themes) course will prepare you on the theme: A Day at the Races.

Please note, for a full Eduqas (9-1) qualification, you must sit the Component 2 exam, along with Component 1 (Language) and Component 3B (Roman Civilisation) exams.

First examination of the Eduqas (9-1) Certificate is in Summer 2018. This literature syllabus is in place until the Summer 2020 examinations.

You may take this course for your own purposes and/or pleasure without sitting the examination.

If you would like to enrol on this course, please click on the Cost tab to make your payment and then on the Enrol tab on the left, where you will see a link to an online registration form.

In this course, Latin Literature and Sources (Component 2), Theme A: Day at the Races, we will study selections from Ovid, Martial, Pliny, Juvenal, Suetonius, and Virgil.  

Standard

Your e-tutor will always be an experienced, enthusiastic Latin teacher, who knows the course well and is familiar with ways to help you with any issues which may arise during the course. He or she is unlikely to be involved in this project for the money! Rather your tutor will want to help you get the most out of your study of Latin and the Roman world.

When you enrol for the course, we will send you, amongst other materials, an Independent Learner's Guide, detailing what work to undertake in each session. Almost all sessions have a designated assignment to send to your e-tutor. Your e-tutor will mark your work and return it to you, with ideas on how you might improve and, like any tutor, will try to explain an idea or concept to you if you are not certain about it. You do not have to send work if you do not wish to do so, of course, but we strongly recommend that you do, as this will both inform you of how you are progressing, and help your e-tutor to assist you in your learning.

Most of our e-tutors tell us that they would like to be contacted by their students more frequently, rather than less, and no limit is placed on the amount of times you may contact your e-tutor.
All e-tutors have completed a Criminal Records Bureau disclosure and are competent in sending, receiving and marking work electronically. Should you have any concerns about your e-tutor at any stage, you can contact our office at any time.

Our free Component 2 Latin Literature and Sources materials, including the set texts in interactive electronic format, as well as digital commentary, and printable resources such as editable text, Teacher's notes, a Student Study Book, and interlinear word order and translations, are found here: http://www.exams.cambridgescp.com/wjec-and-eduqas/eduqas-gcse-9-1-2018-onwards/eduqas-component-2-day-races

There are 6 study sessions for the literature component, each requiring around 2 hours of study. The total study time for the course is therefore around 12 hours.

The Eduqas Certificate exam is a UK public examination and students are responsible for entering themselves for the exam via an examination centre in the autumn of the year before the summer of the exam.

School students are advised to approach their school's Exams Officer and ask that their school enters them for the examination.

Mature students may either approach local schools that are Eduqas examination centres. 

While we cannot take responsibility for entering students for the examination itself, we may be able to assist you by providing information on known examination centres. The WJEC/Educas exam board may also be able to provide such information.
