This Monday I had opened my AQA English Literature paper to only find out that the unseen poem, wasn't unseen for me. On the Friday before the exam as practice my teacher got a random poem on elderly people off of the internet. We got to read and interpret the poem in class, so on Monday I had remembered everything we said in class, so my class and I found the poem question extremely easy.

But I am absolutely dumbfounded because the chances of my teacher picking a random poem and it coming up on an unseen poetry paper is one in a million.

There are many different ways to structure poetry, they all should work fine. My teacher taught us LISTEN

Language
Imagery
Structure
Theme
Emotive language
Narrative.

Basically, we were told to comment on each one of those things above, with each thing forming a new paragraph. But make sure at the end of it you link your point to the question so that the examiner knows you have understood the question.

Which poem was that!? I thought everyone had their poetry exam this Friday.

Was that the foundation paper? Definitely AQA?
