Ancient Greek differs in several ways from modern greek with some pronounciation differences and obviously a different vocabulary due to the time at which they were spoken.

The GCSE consists of two parts: language and literature. Two translations and a comprehension make up the language whilst two set texts, one verse one prose, make up the literature. Unlike Latin, these three are normally completely unconected stories. Not only is a knowledge of the language necessary but a certain amount of analytical technique is needed for the literature, with very little actual translation taking place.

For the 2012 exams, the literature pieces are:

  • Homer, Iliad, Book VI, lines 369-502
  • Herodotus' Histories, Book VIII: Battle of Salamis
