Hi to all who are sitting the English Literature GCSE "Poetry Across Time" exam in January 2013. I am doing some last minute revision and read that 3 of the poems in each cluster will not appear as one of the named poems on the paper. So i was wondering if anyone who is studying the Relationships cluster could tell me which poems will definitely not appear so i don't need to revise them . Also it would be greatly appreciated if you could also tell me which poems have a high likelihood of coming up. Thanks a lot.

Only on foundation tier - In paris with you, brothers and sister maude
Only on higher tier - hour, harmonium and sonnet 116

but you can still use brothers on the higher tier to compare for example

I believe the poems mentioned for foundation won't come up in higher and vice versa.

Yep, exactly. I think some of the literary heritage poems since they haven't come up at all recently... So the sonnets and coy? Just my feeling though.

I need your help! I'm taking this exam in June and are the poems that will definitely not come up the same?
The same poems may come up as AQA do not want teachers to teach around the syllabus. However, I would say it is unlikely that the same poem will appear in successive series.

Hey Natalia, it is very unlikely that these two poems will refeature so soon for this exam ( as they appeared in the VERY latest paper), as they will try and include a range of the poems from the whole cluster. however, simultaneously, AQA are also likely to throw up some poems which have appareared recently to catch out those who don't bother to revise poems which have already appeared as a way of cutting the work load, so there is a small chance that one of the hour/ farmers bride will appear in the June 2013 paper, however if you ask me , I would consider a poem from a couple of papers back (ie January 2012)/one that hasn't appeared yet to feature. Good luck in your exam!
