Latin Language & Roman Civilisation Examiners' Report January 2016

Level 1 and Level 2 Certificates in Latin Language, Latin Language & Roman Civilisation and Latin Literature

WJEC provides, and will continue to provide, qualifications in both England and Wales which meet the needs of teachers and the requirements of regulators in both countries.

The WJEC Certificates in Latin provide flexible and motivating courses which can be used as 'stepping stones' or as a complete alternative to GCSE.

  • There are separate Certificates for Latin Language and Latin Literature
  • They are fully accredited until and including 2017 and each Certificate carries the same number of performance points as a GCSE
  • Both levels are graded A* to C
  • The Level 2 Certificate in Latin Language (with or without a Roman Civilisation element) counts as a language subject in the English Baccalaureate (EBacc)
  • As the Certificates are unitised, they offer the flexibility of unit entries in different sessions
  • The Core Language papers are available in both January and May/June
  • There is the option of Controlled Assessment in both Roman Civilisation and Literature.
