    Interesting choices!
    I wouldn't advise this at all, but last year I learnt Ozymandias, London and Charge of the Light Brigade. Really needs another war poem in there and one about memories/identity wouldn't do any harm either

    Sadly I'm not as familiar with the poems as I was last year so I might be a bit off, but I'd probably suggest something like
    Checking Out Me History (really strong for identity etc.)
    Maybe Charge of the Light Brigade?

    Just do as many as possible. Write out two to three model paragraphs for each poem and memorise them. That's what i did and I aced my lit mock.

    That's really not a good approach especially for the real exam as you'll have so much other content to learn for all your exams there's no point wasting memory space with paragraphs you could produce in the exam!
    All it would take would be for them to put in an obscure theme and you'd instantly drop a load of marks for it not being relevant. Plus you're meant to integrate your comparisons within the paragraph which would be tricky if you are simply regurgitating paragraphs you've written for 2 separate poems.

    make sure you revise remains, storm on the island and exposure, these are all good poems to use when comparing
