Amendment to the GCSE Poetry Anthology: Relationships Collection
1st Date – She and 1st Date – He by Wendy Cope (p.14)
We have recently been made aware that one of the stanzas in ‘1st Date – She’ was missing from our GCSE Poetry Anthology when submitted for inclusion.
We understand that teachers and students are, correctly and as instructed, using the version of ‘1st Date’ printed in the anthology. Therefore, we will of course continue to accept responses based on this version of the poem.
A letter to apologise for the omission and an insert of the full poem has been sent out to all centres who made entries for the 2018 Pearson Edexcel GCSE (9-1) English Literature summer examinations.
Please read the full letter and find the full version of the poem below:
