    Omam questions were a blessing. I thought poetry went well too till discovering that the poems are actually about prostitution and a gay depressed man rather than a fishmonger and a car salesman. Although, the majority of people have interpreted it as the fishmonger and car salesman, and obviously poetry is up for interpretation.

    Rereading them I can see where it is coming from... However the majority of people didn't write that and have interpreted it as the fishmonger and a car salesman. An English teacher told us that finding the ideas about prostituion ans the depressed gay man involved A level skills. I wouldn't worry, such a minority actually saw the other side to the poems.

    Would that mean that the grade boundaries would be lowered since most people across the country have misunderstood it and what parts in the poem hinted to it being about a gay guy and a prostitute

    I can imagine it will say in the top band to award the highest marks to students who have picked up on the prostituion and other deeper connotations. I can't imagine that everybody is going to marked down for not seeing this, as there's only a few who actually did interpret the poem in that way. You will be fine don't worry

    The extract was /10 so let's assume you got 7

    7+17+13 = 37 which would have got you an A for at least the last 3 years running
