I'm studying two books of poetry; Mean Time by Carol Ann Duffy and Whitsun Weddings by Philip Larkin.
My exam board is WJEC and the exam is two hours long with two sections, one individual poem study and one comparison essay.
I'm not entirely sure how to approach revision for this, it's an open book exam so I shouldn't need to learn quotes by heart, what do I need to revise though?
Thanks

Learn your annotations (literary features, effect of language etc.), do lots of comparative essay plans so you can work out what the key themes/points to compare are.

Do loads of practise essays as it helps you a lot with your time keeping. Our class used to make a comparative table with different section for different motifs - what lines, AO4 that goes with it and how the lines from the poetry portray the motif etc.
