In Year Five assessment has two aspects. The formative (A mark), is assessed through in-class work, take home translations, projects, and presentations, in addition to general behaviour and application. The summative (B mark) is tested via the December B test (a two period exam) and the June Latinum Europaeum, a formal exam set centrally. Details may be found here.
