Hi, I did the AQA anthology poems last year (in year 10), but I did it on 'Relationships'. But, sadly I'm not as good as you (only got an A ).
I learnt all the poems in reasonable depth, yet I still retained most of it. If you got an A* in the mock, then what you're doing is right. I just checked my old anthology and there is just about the same amount of poems between 'Conflict' and 'Relationships'.
Also, I thought you would know but you get a CLEAN copy of the anthology when you go into the exam, so as long as you remember your notes, I think you'll get an A*. Good luck!

Great thanks mate Guess I'll just go through as many as possible then!
But my teacher only went through a handful with us, does that mean we have to make notes ourselves on the rest of them?
And in your exam was the question along the lines of: "Compare the way in which [poem A] and one other poem do something?"
Yes, our teacher went through everything, if yours has not, then you may have to have a quick read over them, just to know the general basis of it. Yes, the question on my exam was comparing a selected poem and then using another of your choice based on a theme. Also, we had the unknown poem.
