The IGCSE syllabus for 2020-2022 consists of 153 verses from Book 6 of the Aeneid, detailing Aeneas's descent into the Underworld. Since the exam only assesses lines that do not have an elision, these lines are not included in the practice set, thereby reducing the total to just 82 verses.

More specifically, the syllabus covers Aeneid Book 6.264-416.

The exam also contains an equivalent amount of Latin from Cicero on his denunciation of Cataline, but since this is prose, it is not relevant to this site.

The statistics on this page reflect only the lines from the Aeneid that are included on the IGCSE syllabus.
