    We had our mock on that and 'Trees' (if you're doing Frost and Thomas).

    CCEA are being sly lately, e.g in RS asking two topics in one question or in History asking the same topic 2 exams in a row, so I wouldn't put it past them to put 'People' as the Frost and Thomas exam question as it was one of the poems used in January.
    I noticed! They did women twice for the 2011/2012 papers which seemed to throw a lot of people. But I've looked at women just in case. Yeah, they had old men in January, and I use the new year and old man's winter night for both of them. I've also been looking at contemplation and trees a lot. They're not the hardest themes so hopefully one of them comes up!

    Had a gut feeling for history and 2/3 topics I predicted came up. My gut feeling for English is.. Nick/Gatsby like Fitzgerald and the other as literary context, perhaps modernist due to the film just being out.

    As for poetry - trees or moment of insight.

    That poetry question was a gift from God.
    Opened the paper and it was the 2 poems I've written 3 essays on this year - I do the Lochhead and Duffy poems btw

    Gatsby was a bit iffy. I wasn't really sure what the myth of America was, but I think it was the American Dream and all that stuff about America being land of the free and equal opportunities for all...

    Poetry was a bit ... meh for me - one poem I knew, the other I'd not looked at.

    American myth is what you think it is. But I went for hero because we had just went over that before the exam in a revision class.

    I did hero as well, I was pleased with it tbh. As for poetry (Thomas and frost), I basically used the poems I studied for contemplation and changed it to beauty of nature :L
