The new Latin G.C.S.E. exam comprises three components that are all externally assessed. The new language paper represents 50% of the total marks and includes the translation of unseen passages, answering comprehension questions and translation into Latin or explaining grammatical features.


The study of both Latin prose and verse is still part of the new G.C.S.E. and learners will be required to translate short passages from the set tests, answer comprehension questions and analyse the techniques and language used by the authors.
