practising unseen poetry questions are the best way to improve- no other way really as you won't know what poem'll come up.

it's a matter of looking at a poem like you would with one in the anthology obviously your analysis won't be as much in depth as it's unseen. so you'll need to look at the techniques used, rhyming patterns (if any), the structure, the tone/mood, word analysis poet's intentions... but under timed conditions

You need to compile a list of poetic techniques, know what they mean and see examples in an actual poem. Learn that and practice with unseen poetry and/or past papers and you'll be fine!
