    Try to notice patterns and how they change over the course of the poem for structural points. Try to figure out why it's changed too, and if you're not sure then guess! (As long as it fits with your overall analysis.)

    Hi, please don't stress out too much you will be absolutely fine! Unseen poems are not as scary as they appear, it's very much just practising what you already know and can already do!!

    If you're feeling very anxious about it, you could go on the Poetry Foundation website and print off some poems you like and just annotate them! It is exactly what you would be doing in an unseen exam, it's seriously no different! Once you've annotated it, if you feel like it you can compare it to one of the poems you do know from your anthology, and there, you've done a practise unseen exam!!

    They truly only test what you already know, so you have nothing to worry about!! good luck!!
