It won't be 'Ozymandias' or 'storm on the island' because those were on the specimen papers

All I would say make sure you revise every poem and not just the ones you feel comfortable with. This is because if a poem comes up that you haven't really revised then you are really limiting your marks.

What other texts are you studying?


Good luck!

I don't think it will be Tissue as a lot of teachers have said that it doesn't really fit in with the anthology, and it's too abstract.

it could come up and there could be a question on human fragility...

You would compare it to 'Ozymandias'

True, but I think it will be one of the easier poems for the first year.
