    I thought about putting this message in the thread entitled "AQA Engliah Literature" but its quite unlikely that it would be read by many people.

    Anyway, getting to the point. Did anyone here who did AQA English Literature answer the wrong section for the War Poems? In our school, (and I believe in a few other schools to) that a few candidates compared a War Poem from the Blue section of the book instead of the Brown section. I thought it would have been obvious to compare a ''brown section poem'' as these are the poems that we have analysed in lessons!!!! Wouldn't it?

    I did Specification B, by the way.

    Sorry, I've obviously confused you all. I did Specification B for Literature and the book we analysed poems from was written by Christopher Martin. In the book there is a section on pre-1900 poems (the blue section) and a section on post-1914 poems (the brown section). With the question I did, we had to "Compare and contrast ''Who's for the game?'' with a poem from the post-1914 section", and of course, some people compared with the pre-1900 section instead.

    Hope this is a bit more understandable

    Ok, maybe the phrase I'm using as ''brown section'' and ''blue section'' is confusing everyone.
    What i mean by ''brown section'' and ''blue section'' is that the right or left handside of the pages in the book had either brown or blue margins depending on whether it was post-1914 poems or pre-1900 poems. Thats what I mean, but if your books didn't have this, you may have had the older book whereas I had the newer version.

    I did the one with post/pre 1914 poems, but my book had no colours in it at all. Probably because it was about 20 years old as our school hardly ever buys new books
