Hi! I am taking Eduqas English LangLit A level (basically lit but with grammar analysis) and I have a mock on poetry in a couple weeks. It's open book, but there's 40 poems in our anthology, and we've covered about 17 of them. For GCSE I just did notes & context on each of them, and I tried doing this, but I can tell it is going to be too time consuming to be effective. Anyone have tips on what I could do to revise? The actual essay question in the exam is comparing 2 poems and an unseen text. Thanks in advance

If you know the essay question, do that for revision. English is unique in that it's not a memory test like a lot of other subjects. You need to revise the exam technique and the process of analysis, rather than the right answer.

We haven’t been told the question 😭 I might make a mindmap linking all the themes of the poems, then write out some context etc. Thanks for your help!
