Not Ozymandias for Power and Conflict poetry - it turned up in last year's paper and it was in the spec too (a lifesaver - probably what got me the 9 in English Lit considering my paper 1 was shambolic - I was too stressed so I didn't finish the Christmas Carol Q and I spent too long on Macbeth) Good luck to whoever's doing it this year as the boundaries will be even higher than last year's and the year before! Thank goodness I did my GCSEs last year!

i don't think there going to go up any higher as statistically your year is more intelligent than ours and if we get harder questions then lower grade boundaries

Fair enough - they didn't go up much for English but they did for maths which gave me a mini heart attack on the morning of results day

Got a 9 in maths by only 2 marks - the papers were easy so I did even worse (I got full marks in the first set I did as mocks even though they were so hard). Thank you so much!

Macbeth is likely to be a theme such as Kingship. Poetry I'm going for poppies or war photographer
