Hi there, I'm just going to pop this into the English forum for you as you're more likely to get responses there.

It's quite hard to predict as they're both fairly new to the syllabus. For The Turn of the Screw, we've already had two questions about the governess herself, so perhaps we might get a question about the children? Maybe one could be about how evil they are/how they're presented.

Again for Edward Thomas it's hard to say. So far Tears (strong emotions) and The Sun Used To Shine ('moments of contemplation') - have been on from what I can see on the OCR website. It's hard to predict which poem we'll get, but you can guess at which themes might come up, e.g. conflict, solitude, memory, death, patriotism, nature, relationships.

Sorry I can't be of any more help but I hope I've helped at least with potential themes.

I don't know if Edward Thomas and the Turn of the Screw are on AQA also, but the exam board I'm doing is OCR. I'm not sure what's been on the AQA exam before.

Agreed! We haven't had any questions on the master so in class we did a question on whether he is the most important character in the book, also something about ghosts and the role of fear in the novel. For Thomas 'As the teams head brass' (relationships) and Words (inner self) was predicted

'As the team's head brass' would be good, but I think I'd prefer it if it was on conflict/attitudes to war or something similar.

There was no poem in Jan 2014 because theyve got rid of Module. All exams are now in June.

The poems that have come up so far are:

Soliloquy
Toccata
Love in a Life/Life in a Love

A death poem such as Prospice would be my guess. What do you think?

Prospice would be good bet. As would the Lost Leader. Hoping its not Women and Roses or apparent failure!

Lost leader would be amazing too. Not a big fan of apparent failure tbh. Women and roses is quite nice though
