have you done some practice comparison essays or have been able to group poems together based on themes/techniques/content? knowing the poems is one thing but you won't do as well as you want in the exam if you can't compare them. (are you doing aqa out of curiosity?:ninja:)

Make sure you know a comparison for each poem, always linking to theme, context and techniques. If you know a comparison for each one, that's great! When I was in Year 10/11 I made a grid on 3 A3 sheets with all the poems, containing context, language techniques, structure, tone, theme, quotes and comparisons. This way I could clearly see each poem laid out in a simpler way. Let me know if you need anymore help!
