Challenging course with little tolerance for failure

Pros:

Classics is a four year course at Oxford so is more intensive than other courses elsewhere. You learn more, get that extra time in, work under some of the greatest classicists in the world, and the choice of papers for Greats is huge. Tailor your degree to what you actually care about.

Cons:

If your language is poor or you start Greek/Latin from scratch, you will struggle. These are difficult languages and keeping up with the 1A students can be hard. But it's possible, as some boffins prove every year.

Suggestions:

You shouldn't have made mods less intensive... at least, not the year after I sat them.
