It's silly asking questions like this, you can rule out the questions from last years paper and the specimen paper - but apart from that nobody has any idea.

Why can you "rule out questions from last year's paper"? If it is in the anthology, it is in the mix.

Revise quotes that arch over multiple themes for your books and then for the poetry, you should have knowledge on every poem, but you can cleverly pick the ones you can use to compare. You can get by revising a couple of the war poems, relationships between people. JUST GROUP THEM INTO CATEGORIES! Then choose like 1/2 from that list. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE CONTEXT FOR EVERYONE OF THEM!!!!

It's about practising lots. You can know about all the language/structural features but it's useless if you cannot notice it. With Shakespeare, I would look into meter and things like iambic pentameter, which tells a lot about the characters.

I reckon either checking out me history or tissue will come up, I don't do either of those other texts. Gonna take a punt and say that Bayonet Charge and Remains won't come up, as Bayonet Charge was last year's poem (at least for AQA) and most people compared Remains to it and if they use that people will just compare to Bayonet Charge?Also in the AQA specimen paper Ozymandias is the example so they might not use that, although its an easy one to learn so I'd learn about it anyway in case any with the theme of power of nature or time or humans comes upHope it helped, I'm focusing revision on the later poems in the anthology as I think they're harderXOX

Have you used any of the online resources that take you through the structure and form of the texts? The ones I find most useful are Mr Bruff (youtube) and Seneca Learning (google it). They're really useful .

Adding on again, my teachers reckon that the theme of identity will come up because most of the harder/later poems are that
