Yep!! The only ones that haven't come up yet are Give and The Ruined Maid so I'm sure at least one of them will be on it, and My Last Duchess has come up twice including last year so it won't come up again. Not sure about anything else though.

Yeah my teachers predicted this too, but bear in mind every single prediction I've been told for an exam has been wrong... (still annoyed Curley never came up)

All I know is that the next year elevens won't be able to have the text in front of them they'll have to learn the poems off by heart

For Conflict cluster:
June 2013:: power & hawk roosting OR destructive impact of conflict & the yellow palm
june 2014:: effects of conflict on people & out of the blue OR feelings of confusion & come on come back
june 2015:: ideas about conlict & mametz wood OR fear & bayonet charge



so it could be flag, belfast confetti, futility, the right word, at the border, poppies, the charge of the light brigade or the falling leaves or next to of course america i


hope this helps

ALSO does anyone know how to structure a comparison answer? because i usually do it intro, language, structure, conclusion but i know there are better ways so please help!

For the relationship cluster, presumably In Paris With You could come up, as well as Hour.

How likely is it of AQA repeating the poems from previous years? Has it happened before in this syllabus?
