End of Term assessment Aim: to complete 2 exam questions successfully, after a little help from the chief examiner.
2 questions Don’t panic! We’ve already briefly looked at these! Question 1) Briefly outline 2 reasons why Aeneas was important in the early History of Rome. Question 2) Romulus/ Remus passage + Remus death (2 questions)
Question 1) Briefly outline 2 reasons why Aeneas was important in the early History of Rome. Quickly bullet point 3-4 reasons. (things to include…)
What the Mark Scheme says Use the mark scheme to mark the 2 samples. Give them a mark and a Strength and Target
Sample a SAMPLE A – Aeneas is important in the early history of Rome because he was the first ancestor of Romulus in Italy, and to make Rome seem even greater through it’s (sic)descent from Aeneas’ bloodline, Aeneas is shown to be divine, as well as displaying ‘Roman’ virtues such as bravery and being duteous to the Gods. Aeneas, on his travels, also incurred the wrath of Queen Dido of Carthage, leading to the famous enmity between the two people and the eventual destruction of Carthage. Rome liked to make their reasons for hatred and war against Carthage mythological, and greater through the association with Aeneas.
What the examiner said SAMPLE A - A01: answer contains some knowledge of relevant events: there is some evidence of selection and organisation of information although too much is generalisation. Events can be identified although development is not sufficiently precise for level 4 - a level 3response
Sample B SAMPLE B – Aeneas is important in the early history of Rome as when he leaves the city of Troy on the orders of Hector who appeared to him in a vision he takes with him his household gods which form the basis of future Roman religion. Aeneas is also important in the early history of Rome as founds the city of Lavinium (named after his wife Lavinia) which becomes the basis on which Rome is built around the seven hills. As well as this, Aeneas’ son Ascanius founded Alba Longa which would be equally important to Rome.
What the Examiner Said SAMPLE B – A01: answer contains thorough knowledge of two discrete relevant events; information is detailed and thoroughly relevant, well-selected and organised. Good development - level 5 for full marks Were you roughly in line with the examiner?
Sample E SAMPLE E - In this passage, Romulus and Remus are fighting over the kingship of Rome. They both built temples on different hills and looked for omens from the Gods. Remus first saw six vultures but Romulus then saw twelve and each side believed that their leader should be king, as Remus saw it first where Remus was killed by one of the crowd. These events are important in the development of Rome as it shows how the Gods were involved and this makes it seem like Rome was extremely important. It also mentions the first temples being built so it shows how Rome was religious from the start and this was an important Roman quality and a large part of their culture. The fact that Remus was killed by one of the crowd doesn’t make Romulus look bad so he can still be seen as a hero as it seems that fate killed Remus, so Romulus was chosen to be king anyway. This also emphasises the aspect of fate in the development of Rome: the Gods wanted Rome to be great so they chose the best leader (Romulus) to survive.
What the examiner said SAMPLE E - AO1: answer contains thorough knowledge of the events and issues described in the passage; information is sound, relevant and organised – reference to the passage is detailed and accurate: Level 5 response AO2: answer demonstrate a thorough understanding of relevant issues, events and sources: level 5 response. (full marks or near enough!)
Sample F SAMPLE F – In this passage, the twins competed to be the new king of Rome. They had both built temples and both saw omens. It is convenient that once Remus had seen six vultures, Romulus saw twice as many. When the people could not decide, Remus was conveniently killed by one of the crowd. These events are important in the development of Rome because it shows that in the future Romulus may have continued to compete to be the best. This would have been a good thing because it would have helped the Roman people in battle but it may have been a bad thing because it meant that the Roman people would have lost allies.
What the examiner said SAMPLE F - AO1: answer contains sound knowledge of events and issues described in the passage; information is sound, relevant, and organised – quite good reference to passage: rewarded at level 3 AO2: answer show some understanding of issues but lacks focus and development – level 3 award Total- 4 marks
Question 2b) Remember- It’s about considering whether Livy can be trusted or not! Bullet point 3 reasons why we can/ cannot trust Livy
Sample I SAMPLE I – I think Livy’s account of the conflict between Romulus and Remus is fairly reliable as Livy was a historian and it was therefore in his best interests to provide an accurate description of events (although he does appear to be biased in favour of the Romans on most occasions). With reference to the passage we know that the Palatine Hill and the Aventine Hill did exist so this part of Livy’ story is plausible. However the way that Livy describes the omens Romulus and Remus see is questionable as Livy would have received this knowledge through oral tradition and the stories passed down from generations of Romans meaning that these could have been slightly altered. However the way Livy describes Remus’ death seems reliable as he describes it as being a fight between two ‘sets of supporters’. However Livy’s description is further questioned as there are also descriptions of Remus being killed by Romulus after Remus jumped over his wall and mocked it. These conflicting stories make Livy’s account seem less reliable.
What the examiner said SAMPLE I – AO3: answer presents a thorough attempt to analyse and evaluate the sources; there is a personal response based upon this evaluation and interpretation of the source material. Level 5 response - full marks
Sample J SAMPLE J – Livy’s account is mainly unreliable. This is because he was writing about 700 years Romulus, so most of the stories would have been elaborated and made into myth like the facts about the omens. Also, many records were made and Livy himself states that most of his sources for this early period are myths and folk stories which would have been elaborated. However, if they had built temples then there might have been some archaeological remains in Livy’s time which would have been fairly reliable. Also the fact that the two brothers quarrelled over the kingship is quite likely even if it is not entirely proven as these are quite stereotypical events in most human beings.
What the examiner said SAMPLE J - AO3: answer presents a sound attempt to analyse and evaluate the sources; there is a personal response based on this evaluation. Lack of development places this at the lower end of level 4 3 Marks
Has this helped? What tips for success would you give someone? What makes the difference between a good answer, a weak answer and a GREAT answer?
