    Haha...thanks for your replies.
    'Wrong' as in for some strange reason they've compared 'Hurricane...' with 'Half-Caste'!
    I'm speechless!
    They are a bottom, bottom set and now I think they've completely lost the plot on so many levels[​IMG]
    How worried should I be???

    Well at least they're both part of the same exam!
    They'll be credited for everything they write that is worthy of credit. It will, of course, have some effect on the mark - but less than for my poor little love comparing Lit poems with Lang ones.
    Not at all. There's nothing you can do about it.

  3. If your pupils are reading poetry beyond the curriculum and have the confidence to write about it in an exam, then I'd say you've done a good job.

    It's one of the Lit poems.
    I can see why some pupils would have picked Half-Caste as a comparator, actually.
