I was put onto the IGCSE English course in december and my class has spent the last 5 months doing IGCSE English language. Since my eng language test, which was on the 5th, we have switched to english literature, we have to learn 30 poems, learn what they all mean, by the 22nd. We also need to memorise quotes from OMAM + Romeo And juliet, which i have never studied before. I feel as if it's pointless doing this exam but we have to for our IGCSE English language to count. I don't want to revise as i know i will fail anyways but i don't want on results day for my result to say a "U" and then having to tell my college this grade.
Any advice?

I have quite the same problem .I have two lit exams on Monday and Friday on OMAM and some poems. My teacher was absent for 6 months.

Just make sure you know the characters from OMAM and the relationship between them cause that comes up pretty often

These are links to revision guides for Romeo and Juliet and OMAM. They explain themes, key quotations, character analyses and chapter summaries etc. Depending on the poems you might be able to find useful websites for that as well. Check out sparknotes, schmoop and cliff notes. If you have any questions about OMAN feel free to PM, I studied it a couple of years ago.
