    there is a reviosn guide and links to several videos on my post here : http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...0#post42718490

    we are talking about what may come up in conflict
    i think it will be OOTB and Hawk roosting
    I really do hope Out of the Blue comes up as it's a great poem and I have lots to say about it, however personally I think the ones that you've mentioned will be the Foundation Tier poems. I think that The Yellow Palm and Come on Come Back are due to come up.

    Yes. And Sister Maude, Brothers and In Paris With You can never come up as they are foundation and are never named in higher. Obviously you can compare them to a named poem but if you take these three into account and all the ones that have come up previously, the four I mentioned are the only ones left.

    what did A-A* candidates write about Eric in "An Inspector Calls"
    I talked about how the violent language he uses shows he know what he did wrong, and I talked about how he's symbolic of everyone who have sinned, but can still redeem themselves by helping the lower classes, and of the youth who have the power to change the mistakes of the previous generations

    Why is everyone saying 'Give' won't come up for Character and Voice? It's never been named before?

    all the other poems have already come up and In Paris With You, Brothers and Sister Maude are only for the foundation paper.
    That's complete rubbish!!! It can be over any of them!

    No, the exam board have said poems which are only for the foundation tier. Look at the OP
