Description - Latin Unseens for A Level by Ashley Carter

This collection of Latin unseen passages forms a companion volume to Latin Momentum Tests for GCSE, and is intended to be used similarly by students preparing for examinations at AS, A2 and AEA levels. The largest section is set at AS level and comprises prose passages forming a coherent story based on original sources but simplified to maintain a level of difficulty appropriate for this level. A knowledge of a typical vocabulary list of about 1000 words is assumed. Most of the rest of the passages are, with rare exceptions, unadapted Latin, both prose and verse, taken from the authors used in the examinations. Difficult or rare words are glossed. The last few passages are of a standard of difficulty appropriate to AEA level. All passages are of a similar length and format to those used in the examinations. One sample mark scheme has been included to give teachers and students some insight into how these unseens are marked in the examinations.
