      Is this higher or ordinary ???

    13. avatar image


      This is higher level paper two

      So many people did this! Oh my god 😩🙈 but yeah 15/30 seems to be the max as you only referred to one poem when they were probably looking for upwards of 2 and a discussion about the poets style of writing etc

      But I could be very wrong, they may bend the marking scheme a little bit to allow for extra points, I'd say you'll be fine!

    16. avatar image


      but they only said discuss the 'work' not works and how a certain work of your chosen poem made you feel right??????????????/

    17. avatar image


      EXACTLY, ppl, it says refer to his/her poetry, not the poem. I'm rlly hope u guys are wrong

      i did the other question, on a poem suitable for a certain occasion (dulce et decorum est=historical anniversary) and wrote pretty much the same thing for both parts, as i didn't know what to say... i'm sure they'll be lenient as so many people have made the mistake.

      I think it's right if you talk abou the poem and how the poet uses to poem to convey messages that give you different perspectives on ideas. So I wrote about a poem called Revenge and how the poet gives readers new perspectives on the idea of revenge. I dont think you need to do more then one of the poets poem because it does say work not works. i'd say everything will be fine

      yeah ur right Salman just realized it said refer to her poetry probably the poets style of writing using a work of his as an example so I think it works both ways we can discuss the poet mainly if we want or g into further details about the poets poetry2. get me this is rlly confusing I know

      I did dulce et decorum est and David how I realised the futility of war by studying it but I inly referred to the one poem what does anyone think ...
