I have a mock exam on the power and conflict cluster of the poetry anthology from AQA for GCSE. I am doing the new 9-1 course meaning the exam will be closed book. How am I supposed to revise themes, alternate interpretations, from, structure etc. while trying to remember quotes?
Also there are 15 poems all together that I have to revise.
Any tips I would really appreciate it
Thanks

lol i actually managed to predict the poetry Q and the poem that was gonna come up so I only revised 2 poems the night before

anyway, i suggest you start reading over your poetry annotations frequently a few months before the exam, so that all info will be stored in ur long term memory.
I wud probs summarise poems on flash cards to make things easier
