    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?
