Is it plagiarism to memorise some A* analysis paragraphs (written by someone else which is available online) for a few characters which you think will come up and then if one of them comes up, then copy it out in the exam. Do they check your essays for plagiarism in the exam or is it only coursework/controlled assessment.

This is plagiarism and you can never, never, plagiarise. Obviously you're not expected to footnote in an exam or provide a bibliography, but if you are directly quoting a critic of some kind, you should mention their name, e.g:
'As literary critic James Campbell defines it, "Combat Gnosticism" is...'
This is a little bland, and I'm sure you could find much better ways of incorporating what they say into your essay, but it gets the job done.
