Poetry live sucked anyway. It didn't help for GCSE atall, was just a bit of a fun day off.
It didnt help with my understanding atall, all I found out was that Carol ann duffy wrote education for leisure about a little sh*t who flushed his goldfish down the loo at school, and that this room was written when Imtiaz Dharkers ceiling fell down.

Well thanks that is a relief to know, I don't understand why AQA chose such a rubbish poet out of all the brilliant poetry in the world.

Im really worried about the exam but im trying to be calm, and not to worry, ive been working for the higher paper but im predicted a C, and doing higher which is a risk but im aoiming to get a B,

i went to the poetry live thing in london it was a complete waste of time, althoughs 6 lessons i missed at school which i now regret , it was a wasre of time no advice on improving especial in thepoerty from teh poets, the only good thing was the chief examiner who writes the wquestions gave some advice but then i forgot them so it was pointless, I WISH EVERYONE SUCCESS IN THERE EXAMS, AND MY SELF. (or maybe shall i say everyone to do bad so they'll put down the grade boundries and i can get my B):rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes: :p: :p: :p:

The chief examiner wasn't good atall, he gave no hints and the only thing he gave advice on was how to get a C. And then he told some pointless story about his daughter who he said got a D at the beginning of the story then changed it to an E later

She's dead boring!

Does anyone do Seamus Heaney and Gillian Clarke?
Do we only learn 4 peoms from each? (I'm doing higher by the way, so I don't need to learn the foundation poems --- at least that's what my teachers told me)
