    I don't think so unfortunately but you can re do it next year if you're in year 12. I did awful in this exam so I'm trying to stay positive by thinking about retaking it next year

    What exam board?
    And if you're talking about the unseen poetry it does not matter if you misinterpreted the poem as long as you backed your interpretation with clear evidence of what you think then you can still access full marks

    Even if it shows that you completely didn't understand the poem? Like the subject matter? E.g. if the poem was about walking down the park and describing what the poet saw, one may interpret it like "someone at a beach"

    Is there a teacher to confirm anything about the exams?

    Yeah you can, don't worry. It may cost you around £15-30 though

    Well my teacher is a moderator of exams and also marks exam papers and she told us that so many people do not understand the actual meaning of the poem but if you use evidence to back up your point they cannot really deduct marks because the exam is not purposely trying to trick you, they just want to instil analytical skills and see how you can analyse a poem (they know that you have just seen it, they don't expect you to know everything especially under pressure)
