I left bit under an hour early, I knew I wouldn't go well so guess I didn't have enough to write about. I knew all the political stuff for sparta and they threw in the economic activity question that smashed me. Overall I didn't go that well :blink2:

I screwed up the multiple choice question about the tomb... I didn't answer that it would have been outside the gate at Herc. I'm really angry about it, because as soon as I walked out I realised what I had done.
Other than that I thought that it was a really easy exam...

Band 4 here I come! Could it have been much worse? The Augustus 25 marker!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! And the Pompeii questions have never seemed this hard!!!! Maybe I'm just unlucky because they literally asked the only thing I didn't want them to. Spent too long on Pompeii, so I realised with an hour to go I had to do a 25 marker, 15 marker and a 10 marker. Somehow managed to write 3.5 pages, 2 pages and 1.5 pages of really small writing so it could have ended far worse.

I actually found it doable, not easy in any sense, but I felt I handled it well and could answer all the questions. Some of you guys had trouble with it which makes me feel like I misinterpreted the questions :S

that was the easiest thing ever!
I assume that because you didn't reply with an answer you didn't find it very easy.

But I'm not sure what everyone else is going on about, even with my screw up on the tomb question (I remembered tombs outside a gate from a documentary but thought it may have been from the Augustan age.... dammit) and doing the Agrippina 15 marker in 15 minutes, <85% is easily achievable.

Also, with that avatar I bet u a H@Ck3R
