Well done on the A* in the poetry exam. I slightly missed the A* I was 2 marks off but I guess that is alright. Somali ended up with a high A. I took my English Language Unit 1 exam and also Business exam today so I hope I done well on that, wish me luck I might need it! Good to hear that sixth form work is interesting, apparently it covers what you already learnt in GCSE but in great detail or am I wrong do you learn new content? I am looking forward to sixth form life and I hope I find it interesting as well.Wosh you great successes from your studies and continue to work hard and aim for the very top grades! Happy new year!
And yes, I will try my best to work hard and have a fantastic year at the same time. Thanks!
By the way can I just ask if you did triple science for GCSE and what you got in them and what have you picked for A levels. I am considering triple science and maths.
I guess you are now in Sixth Form Year 12? How are your studies going? Sorry long time no speak. How were your poetry exam results? Hope all is well. I'm starting to realise what a tough year this Year 11 is! Wish me good luck!

and tips for unseen poetry:
1) Ask yourself what the poem is about? The general ideas behind it and the message the poet is trying to present.
2) What language devices does the poet use to present these messages and what effect does it have on the reader?
3) Why is the poem structured in that particular way? What effect does this create?
E.g. A sonnet form is used for presenting love and affection through a tightly controlled rhythm and form. This shows great care has been gone into writing the poem and the rhyming gives the poem a rhythmic pace to the reader when reading.
Or if the poem didn't rhyme and it was a poem about war you could say how the poet has chosen not to make it rhyme to show that war is a brutal, unpleasant thing. Also it could have a messed up structure to represent that war can be dangerous and damaging.
Also check out the englishbiz guide. It's really helpful:

RE: Your essay seems really good!
I have completed the notes and I have both sample questions and A grade answers.
I have also made a document on how to write an A* response in the exam!(:
Do you want be to send it too you??
I'm too doing the AQA Poetry Across Time Relationships Cluster. Could you please help me to compare poems A* (Band Mark 6)? Possibly provide A* essay and resources. In turn I will help you if help needed. My exam is on May 24th.
