Basic English reading and writing skills are required.

It is recommended that students allocate 150 hours to study fully for the AS in Classical Civilisation. Given that the Odyssey unit comprises half of the AS, you should expect to spend approximately 75 hours study time on it. It is recommended that students allocate around 180 hours to study fully for the A2 in Classical Civilisation. Since the Art and Architecture in the Greek World paper makes up exactly half of the A2, you should expect to spend around 90 hours preparing yourself for this exam in particular.

Unit 1: Homer's Odyssey and Society. Unit 2: Greek Tragedy in its Context. Unit 3: Art and Architecture in the Greek World. Unit 4: Virgil and the World of the Hero.

UK Open Learning will provide you with a list of examination centres but it is entirely your responsibility to find a centre which will accept you as an external candidate. In some cases you should be prepared to travel to another town or city to take your exams.
