A restricted vocabulary list (RVL) and restricted grammar list (RGL) will be provided for the translation of the English sentences into the ancient language.
These are optional components. Students study a set text or group of texts, totalling between 110 and 120 lines in length. The set texts will change every two years.
This is an optional component. Students study the prescribed ancient source material covering two themes of civilisation and culture. The study of these prescribed sources needs to be supplemented with other non-prescribed ancient sources covering the same theme.
