I considered the other question but eventually I went with my gut instinct. Thought the extract was difficult, and the second poem was a bit dodgy.

Lets face it, we all found the poetry hard because it was so random (about nature).
Let alone that, there was not much stuff to analyse which made me really shaky in the exam.......I was literally scratching my head to think what to write about these poems.

Leaving that, The mice and men was a good half of the paper and in my opinion the whole country probably did good on that half. Saying that, if this is true, then the grade boundaries will be quite high but at the same time will be brang down because of the poetry section.

What do you guys think grade boundaries will be?

Loads of people from my school found the poetry section really easy

I've been following this thread since this morning, but I finally decided to sign up so I can talk to you guys. Hi! I think the exam went fine, everyone said the poetry was hard? I found it quite OK. Similarities I wrote about included that both poems were about nature changing scenery, how the change was inevitable and I quoted why.. 1st poem something about 'it has to blossom' and something else from the other poem. The differences, they both were about changing scenery but one was about changing scenery positively (City Lilac) and second one was negatively... I can't remember other points I made.

I did that question too, what points did you make? I made points about poverty, death, privilege, social stratification, cultural American dream... etc

I, for one, felt the second poem described a more ruthless side to nature whereas poem one focused around its more gentle side. Don't forget, everyone, you get marks for your own opinion, not the examiner's.

First poem was about drugs and prostitution: 'flesh exchange', 'deal is done'. 'cracked alleyways'. The 'lilac' is a metaphor for prostitutes but hardly anyone realised this e.g. me. Sad times

But as above, as long as you support your ideas then you can still get the marks! I just thought it might help to finally understand the poems because they were so hard!
