Latin Level 1 / 2 Certificate
Level 1 and Level 2 Certificates in Latin Language / Latin Language & Roman Civilisation
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.
The Level 1 and Level 2 Certificates in Latin Language and Latin Language and Roman Civilisation will be available in 2018 and future years. All current options, including Core Language papers in January and Controlled Assessment for Roman Civilisation, will continue. From 2018, only GCSE in Latin will attract performance points and contribute to the Ebacc.
The Roman Civilisation topics for 2018 to 2020 are Topic 3 The Roman Army and Topic 4 Entertainment and Leisure.
The Level 1 and Level 2 Certificates in Latin Literature were examined for the final time in Summer 2017.
