I am doing the aqa poetry exam on friday and need any help and predictions for the conflict cluster as well as how to answer for some poems! I believe Flag, Falling Leaves and The Yellow Palm haven't come up?

I'm doing the same exam-yellow Palm I think has come up recently on re last years..I do have a feeling for flag but then I think again that they both are simple poems so mayb not. I'm jus keeping my fingers crossed for the charge of the light brigade or futility 🙈

Ah realised its The Right Word that hasn't come up not the yellow palm, doubt futility will come again as its the easiest and compares to everything

Aqa chose 3 poems from each cluster that wont ever come up on higher- but tbh its worth while revising them because you could use them to make comparisons ...

belfast confetti and bayonet charge were in the june 2011 paper. They only haven't used the same poems twice because there have been a larger choice. Now theres only three left its pretty predictable so they will have to repeat at least one to make it less predictable.

yeah so because they can be on either tier the flag the right word and falling leaves will have the most possible chance as they not have yet been on higher tier, so all we have to find is which poem has not been used on foundation than we will know for definite what two poems it will be.

Yellow Palm and next to of course... were both in 2013 (June and Jan respectively) while Belfast Confetti was 2011, not even on the AQA website. I reckon Belfast Confetti and one of Flag, Falling Leaves and The Right Word

Bayonet charge and Mametz wood. I haven't been on this thread until now, can you update me on which conflict poems are likely to come up?

As the foundation poems can now appear on the higher paper, it's likely we will see a foundation poem (thanks god) and poems like belfast conetti haven't come up since 2011, it is definitely not going to be come on come back or out of the blue as they appeared last year. It's a good chance it will be either belfast confetti, the right word, falling leaves or mametz wood!!
