lol well i guess I'll ask u smthing since I want to do eng lit for A levels
I'm not the best in poetry and I think it's because last yr we didn't have a teacher for it and this yr we have one but only once a week and he isn't that good. I never had the time to revise for it also in exams it's rly hard for me to remember the poems but now I think I'm improving since I'm teaching my self and watching Mr bruff on YouTube.
Do u think eng lit a level poetry is hard and would I cope with it if I had a good teacher and study a lot for it

I'm not trying to put you off, because A Level English Lit is a great subject, I enjoy it far more than I did at GCSE. I love studying the books but with poetry not so much tbh. I just recently did a mock, got an A for my essay on 'The Importance of being Earnest' (one of the books I'm doing) but a C on my poetry. At the moment we have been given over 50 poems to learn, and probably get more in the future. It is hard but if you work hard you should be fine. Majority of the exam is based around the books, and there is still course work atm for English Lit A Level. If you enjoy for GCSE you will love A Level.

Yeah I know over 50 it's crazy, we have two poetry booklets. One is Poem of the Decades (around 30 poems) and the other one is 20 poems all by John Keats (My least favorite part about English Lit).

Yes the Exam is open book, which is a good bonus. With poetry it's similar to GCSE, you get given one poem and you have to compare it with another poem, which you don't see in the exam. This is why poetry (for me anyway) is the hardest part of English Lit A Level.
