I'm doing An Inspector Calls, Of Mice and Men, and for poetry; Relationships.
Do you think it's best if I reread the books and make my own notes or?
I struggle with English, I sort of just see what is there, I'm not good with thinking beyond the literal lol

Well it might help to maybe search them up on the internet, a lot of revision notes will come up and they will be really helpful.
Also, re reading the poems and novels will definitely help because the more you read it, the more you discover, you will find new things that would be interesting to point out in your response, and not only will you get extra marks but it will be original

Definitely use the Internet - stuff like spark notes is quite useful - and you could also buy a revision guide, or ask a teacher to recommend one, as this will help you to know what you need to know, and perhaps give you ideas of what to write about.
Read the texts, and get to know them really well, as it makes the exams less stressful if you can find quotes quickly.
But, most importantly, do past papers (or make up your own exam-like questions) - practise writing exam-like answers, in the time limit. If you have a nice English teacher, you could get them to mark these answers too, as it is really useful to get feedback.
