The best way to revise:
In my opinion, to get the best out of the exam, make flash cards of the terminology - for example, alliteration etc. Make sure that you read over them over and over, making occasional notes every hour of what you know as it will give you an indication of the important bits to revise. You NEED the key terms to do well!!!!

How to do well in the exam:
Pick any quote out that you can find and write anything on it. As long as you explain it and say how it affects the reader, they can't tell you that you are wrong! :)
Use lots of quotes too, but make sure that you go into detail about it all.
Be careful with spelling, punctuation etc - use a wide range of punctuation (semi colons, full stops, commas, colons, hyphens) - if you don't know how to use these, REVISE THEM!!!

MAKE SURE THAT YOU KNOW THE KEY WORDS (ALLITERATION, ONOMATOPOEIA)!

Also, comment on the structure of the writing - this can help too :)

I did all these things and managed to get an A overall, even though my coursework was ridiculously bad :)

Good Luck, hope this helped :)
