16+ Latin and Greek
16 Plus Latin and Greek is sat by students wishing to enter the sixth form of an independent school. Most often students will sit exams in their desired A Level subjects, so usually between three and five subjects. The 16+ exams generally require a good understanding of the subjects’ GCSE syllabi but as the schools are testing for potential, candidates will be pushed and be given questions where their knowledge is stretched.
The GCE A Level Latin course involves enthralling history, intricate literature and subversive philosophical and political views and opens up opportunities for enquiry and enlightenment.
The GCE A Level Greek course promotes cultural sensitivity towards our social, literary and historical beginnings. It usually involves a focus on translation skills and an increased appreciation of influential texts within their contexts.
