Yes, if they ask for how power is presented?

I know, this was just a mere prediction that my English teacher made. She thinks 'Dulce et decorum est' might possibly come up, as well as war poems. Although I'd strongly advice to just revise all of them to their maximum, rather than work on an assumption.

What mock paper? I have not seen any mock papers from Eduqas, I thought they were too greedy A lot of people have been predicting war and love poems, as they think the exam board will go easy on us, considering the fact it's our first year and they don't want poor grades to reflect negatively on this new syllabus.

Could you please link me to the mock paper please!!!!!

Ignore what I said, our school made up our mock because they hadn't taught us to autumn yet. The official mock and specimen is on the eduqas website the poem was to autumn, so it is likely to be love or war, sorry!

I know me too, I'm hoping it's going to be an environment poem (with the exception of living space, as I loath that poem )

IKR. Nature and love are such boring poems and I'm really hoping they ask us about London. Fingers crossed 😊

We were told by our teachers that Ozymandias was likely to come up as apparently everyone must know a Romantic Poet and the only way they know that for sure is to put one in the paper so it's practically 1/4 since To Autumn was in the specimen and isn't likely to come up!

Sorry if I'm dragging this slightly off topic, but does anyone have any tips for the layout of the second 25 mark question (compare the theme of x in whatever with your chosen poem)? I'm aiming for a 7/8 but it's this last question that's really pulling me down.

It'd be OK if there weren't so many of the bloody things.
