Buy the CGP guide- it compares all the poems and themes etc in detail. What cluster are you doing?

When I did my GCSEs I just read the poem and analysed it in full, we did it in class too but I just made like a page of notes on each poem. Then after doing that think about comparable things between the two eg the themes explored (I did relationships so I would compare how they are expressed in different ways) so that you know which poems to compare in the exam.

Try and see if there's any simplified version of the poems you're studying in the clusters online, then that'll give you a great overview of the poem which you can easily revise. Then you can dig deep and analyse in utter detail.

I'll PM you more info; what cluster are you studying?

That's a pretty crap cluster- conflict is so much easier.
I'd say just learn the key features of poems and what themes they link to. My friend did the relationships mock and said it was pretty easy.
The unseen part is REALLY easy- I could tell you what its about, but that would be cheating-ish.

The unseen poem wasn't 'Symptoms' by any chance, was it?

Yeah, I think that s what it was called.
You have to say how the poet shows love in it.
I only got 12 because i ran out of time, but it is easy af to analyse because it can be read on two levels.
