    Also yes your 2016 paper was quite hard compared to ours.

    I don't understand the mango memes since the poem was the simplest text of the 3?!!

    The mango poem was pretty good for analysis, heaps of techniques.

    I've read the poem years ago, and came to that conclusion on first reading that it was sexual.

    Re: English Paper 1 - Thoughts

    What would those techniques be? Perhaps it is because English is my second language, but when I read the poem at the day I felt pretty dumb because I couldn't understand it very well. I am not too nervous about though, to be honest.
