I'm doing the same paper What poet are you doing?
I've got a pupil friendly mark scheme given to me by my teacher.
For an A* you need to:
Interpret and respond to poetry in a sophisticated and perceptive way.
Evaluate precise detail in a confident and convincing way.
Understand writer's choices of language, structure and form with sensitivity.
For a B you need to:
Respond to poetry clearly and consistently
Support points carefully with relevant detail
Understand some of the effects of writer's choices of language, structure and form.
So for an A I guess its all kind of in the middle! Hope this helps How are you planning on revising?
