    Yeah it was.
    What were the book questions? Do you do Lord of Flies? I’m asking because I want to eliminate the ones who have come up in the past two examinations from AQA

    teachers gave us tissue on our mocks, was the one poem i didn't want to come up
    I literally do no know any one the poems properly though. I think it's ridiculous that we need to know 15 but oh well, I guess life's not fair.

    15's a bit ridiculous, 8 would have been a reasonable number but not 15.

    It would be helpful if you asked your English teacher if your mock was from the November 2017 exam because it will help everyone eliminate a poem for learning and Bayonet Charge cape up last year. If you can please let me know tomorrow

    Don’t know if you’re joking or not. But writing exams takes a lot of time

    OF COURSE im joking. you reap what you sow. you may chat and pass an exam, get a high paying job after graduating, start a business..... and OH NO. KARMA GOT BACK TO YOU. the business flops. oh well, now, you're living in squalor.
    so, yes i'm joking, once again you reap what you sow.

    I hope it's on my last duchess. It's really good for analysis and it offers a variety of viewpoints for you to waffle about. It can also link to a few poems because of the vagueness of the idea of an "internal conflict"

    So which poem are you suggesting?
    (Original post by hamzahabdulhamid)
    It may seem a bit stupid but it’s actually quite logical. AQA will choose a poem that fits the page so it’s likely to be a short poem as last year it was Bayonet Charge and on the specimens it’s Ozymandias. Also since the paper is 2 hours 15 minutes with 4 hard questions, AQA will choose a poem that can be analysed quickly and read quickly so you have time to think about it.
    In the specimens and last years they were all short.
