according to my teacher...the higher tier exam would never have question based on 'In Paris with you', 'Brothers' or 'Sister Maude'...Higher tier could be asked about 'Hour', 'Harmonium', 'Sonnet 116'.

foundation tier could possibly have the ones mentioned above...('In Paris with you', 'Brothers' or 'Sister Maude') - THIS DOESN'T MEAN OU CAN'T USE THESE POEMS FOR COMPARISON!

THIS IS NOT LIKE FINALISED OR ANYTHING...THE EXAM BOARD JUST SAID THAT THROUGHOUT THE TIME THIS SPECIFICATION IS MAKING QUESTION PAPERS...FOUNDATION WOULD NEVER BE ASKED ABOUT HOUR, HARMONIUM AND SONNET 116...AND HIGHER WOULD NEVER BE ASKED ABOUT IN PARIS WITH YOU, BROTHERS AND SISTER MAUDE...

does that make sense?? just revise a bit of everything...but maybe concentrate on the poems more related to your tier??

How do you tell which poems are related to which tier?

But I would still revise all the poems anyway since you will need to choose poems to compare with the question so it would still be useful to know those poems!

oh ok! thank you guys :)
i just found out for the higher tier that sonnet 43, harmonium, nettles and manhunt have already come up, so i doubt a question will come on them but i will revise them anyway as they are useful to compare with :)
