How many poems are people learning for the exam? I figured that a few of the Holy Sonnets, Good Friday and 5 of the love poems would be enough, but I'm not sure

My teacher (and private tutor) have BOTH suggested picking 5 poems to study in DETAIL, with 5 more in passing. Though I am doing 6 with one Holy Sonnet.
Break of Day
The Good Morrow
The Sun Rising
and Holy Sonnet 14- 'Batter my heart'
For the actual exam you'll need to mention 5 poems: 3 in heavy analytical detail and 2 in passing.
Hope this helps
