I'm studying Of mice and men, An inspector calls and I'm doing the relationships cluster. I think unit 1 (modern texts) went alright, but the Inspector calls questions were awful!
In terms of poetry, I think Coy mistress, brothers and in paris with you are likely to appear - they are the only poems that haven't been named so far. Does anyone have any predictions for what themes might be on it?
it's the last year, so I think the questions will be very specific. Maybe on structure or language specifically.

I predict that it will be a new poem (like THCM) with a theme and then a well-known or easier poem (like nettles or praise song for my mother) with a specific thing like the start/ending or language/structure.

I don't think it's going to be very specific because it was very very vague for the Omam and the crucible exam. To his coy mistress is a possibility however, it might not come up due to the fact that it is now in the a level cluster too

I did An inspector calls and OMAM and I think that the OMAM questions were generous whereas AIC was more difficult.
So, I think one question is going to be fairly simple but one will be more difficult.

My predictions are:
To his coy mistress is a possibility however, In Paris With You could come up. Does anybody think they'll ask on the structure and language specifically this year?

I don't know. It could be anything tbh. It's the last year they could do anything bc in our crucible exam they gave us a question and then a choice between 4 characters to write about two which was really weird

Could someone possibly tell me what could be asked on To His Coy Mistress so that I can do a practise answer?

The Farmer's Bride came up twice too in the past 3-4 years - so they may not use that poem for the Relationships Section

Do you get a choice of two questions? I thought there was only one option but looking at past mark schemes and each cluster has two poem choices...

In sister maude, does he beloved really die? I get the feeling from it that her father is the only one that dies, especially in the poem when she says 'spared his soul'? Not sure whether to go into the exam with this interpretation of it?

Yes that's correct. You choose one question of two options from the cluster and one unseen (no option)

My prediction for relationship cluster:

Compare how the poets represent Death in To His Coy Mistress and one other poem.

What do people think about this prediction?

I would compare it with Harmonium

Ah thanks! Can you help me with how to structure an answer please? I understand the unseen but don't get how to structure the comparison.

Thanks
