    So i got a question. Are we allowed a copy of the fifteen poems (poetry anthology book) in the exam. From what I've been told, some are saying we'll get a blank copy while others are saying we won't get one at all. Which is it?

    You used to get a blank anthology, but now in the new 9-1, you won't. One poem will be printed on the paper, and you'll be asked to compare that poem with one other on the anthology.

    What do you mean memorise 'one poem'? If we do not get a blank anthology don't we have to memorise all of them?

    No. You don't have to revise all 15 in their entirety. Knowing quotes, structure and context, and being able to talk about each of those aforementioned factors, will suffice. There's no need to memorise the whole thing, as some lines are mostly irrelevant.
