You mean the 10 mark questions? I'm not sure if I'm talking about the right thing, but for the 10 mark questions you have to focus on literary techniques and always relate to the question. For example if the question asks how Virgil makes a certain extract vivid and dramatic, you should constantly be referring back to the title, e.g. 'This moment is made dramatic by Virgil's use of...'
In terms of structure, you should use the bullet points given as the subject of your paragraphs. You will be given 2 or 3. Put equal weight on all the bullet points given and make sure you make at least 9 points in total which are backed up with Latin quotes and their English translation. Remember to translate ALL Latin.
As for the learning, I guess you just need to put in the time effort. It took me a reeeaaaallllyy long time to learn but regular revision helps :)
