    I have a mock exam on paper 2 of the English literature section of the AQA exam and i'm not sure how to go about revision. Do I revise all 12 poems from the anthology or just a few in detail?

    I was 5 marks away from a 9 in my English Literature and I am now studying A-Level English Literature. You need to revise each poem in depth, there is no say what so ever what poems will come up in the exam and you need to be prepared to analyse unseen poetry too. You'll have the poems infront of you but it's very handy to have memorised your notes for each poem - you also need to be able to compare each poem with another. I hope this helps, I really wouldn't say the best idea is to only study majority as I know people who studied all and still got quite low or not even pass rates, and they only got this, due to not enough detailed revision.
