Legacy Papers

Latin Language 1 (A401/02)

A401/02 consisted of comprehension, translation, comprehension. The story came from Greco-Roman mythology, or occasionally a scene from daily Roman life. Some words in these papers are no longer required for the new syllabus (see Extra Vocab at the bottom of the table). The first comprehension is very similar to that on the current language paper (J282/01).

Latin Language 2 (A402/02)

A402/02 consisted of a comprehension and a translation. The story was historical, involving politics or war. 23 words from this module have been culled for the current syllabus (see Extra Vocab at the bottom of the table). The paper is very similar to the final two sections on the current language paper (J282/01).
