 You need to revise Rhythm, ryhme, structure, imagery, poetic voice and diction. As long as you know some of the techniques involved in these you should be fine!

Rhythm - metrical foot (iambic/trochaic meter)

ryhme - full ryhme, part rhyme, etc

structure - end stopped line, caesura, emjambament, stanza's, lines, bathos, etc.

Imagery - metaphor, similie, personification, etc.

Poetic voice - Alliteration, echo, repatition, etc.

Diction - the words used and if their is any connations or symboism.

Hope I helped :)
