Latin Beyond GCSE covers all the linguistic requirements for the OCR AS and A Level in Latin. It aims to bring students to a point where they can tackle original Latin texts with confidence. Although designed as a continuation of Latin to GCSE, it is self-contained and can be used independently.
This new edition is brought in line with the new OCR specifications and benefits from a completely redesigned layout, with added colour and images. The answer key is available on a companion website. The first part of the book introduces new constructions and the translation of sentences from English to Latin, with reading passages at AS standard. The next sections provide translation and comprehension passages at AS and A-level, including verse unseens, scansion, and a list of 300 common poetic words. Next come longer unadapted extracts from a range of authors. Finally there is a reference section including a summary of all constructions, a comprehensive grammar, and a general vocabulary of about 1200 Latin words.

As a regular, and very satisfied, user of the original edition of this book, I was rather sceptical about whether a second edition was necessary. What might one want to change? Words duly eaten ... Altogether, a very welcome update, a textbook endorsed by OCR for GCE, and much to be recommended. * Classics for All Reviews *
As for the additions and changes ... All of which will be extremely useful both for students and teachers. No other book provides such help. * Journal of Classics Teaching *
