The exam is a closed book exam (they cannot take the text in with them) so they need to know the text inside out! We provide copies of the novel and play for students to study in school, but if they want to highlight and annotate their novel/play, they will need to buy their own. Poetry. Pupils will be provided with an anthology containing all sixteen poems. Please encourage your child to tell you all about the poems. They can tell you what the poems are about, which ones they like/dislike and discuss which poems are similar and different. Pupils will receive weekly homework which will help them prepare for the exam. Please encourage your child to complete their homework to the best of their ability.
