I have the exam on wednesday too, just try copying out all of the notes you have on the poems onto a new anthology if you have one, it really helps! :)

Ask your teacher for 'burst sessions'  tommorow (Tues) and just before the exam. Ask a friend to help , go ahead and call that friend and test each other out.

I can help you at home if you contact me.

We can directly and actively co-operate, like a study buddy.

Get a piece of A4 and cut it into 4, on each little bit of paper write about 2 poem (one on the front and one on the back) including the title of the poem and its poetic terms two of the poems. By poetic terms i mean, onomatopoeia, metaphor, repetition etc. But write nothing else about the poems on the paper so you are just left with the name of the poem and the poetic terms. Make sure you can understand ALL the poetic terms that are included in the poems! Then when your in the exam before you read the actual question scan over all your poems and highlight the poetic terms in each of the poems.

As the others, yeah I have this exam tomorrow as well. I forgot about it until Yesterday so swatting up on it now :)

Just read over your past notes then practice analyzing them on a new copy. Also pick out the ones you think will give you more to write about; there's no use learning all sparsely when you can pick a few and get deeper, and closer to a A*.

Also, on the actual test My teacher mentioned that when you write about the 4 way poems, you don't have to include four poems in one paragraph - as long as you use the four anywhere in the essay then it's fine

tip: remember connectives "However" "Similarly" "Contrastingly"

Good Luck!!! :D
