I'm struggling too. One thing that's important to do is memorise several different trailers for several different themes. E.g. memorise The Hunger Games & The Homesman for gender, or Pan & The Lady in the Van for age, or Invictus & 9/11 World Trade Centre for nationality, and Pride & Straight Outta Compton for cultural/ethnicity questions... that sort of thing, so you're not stumped when a 'talk about how age is represented in two trailers'. Also use general trailers (the three I think I'll use are The World's End, Jurassic World and The Hunger Games) for stuff about narrative etc.

Make sure you know your camera angles. And it goes without saying: terminology. Unfortunately that's where you get your marks. I dropped about five marks on my mock because I just completely forgot about key words etc.

Also, for section B, make up a poster for every genre, right now. Think of different designs, names, plots, taglines, etc. So when you get into the exam and you see 'design a sci-fi poster' you can just write down the poster you did for 'Aliens Gone Wild' or whatever.

Practise answers! Especially for industry & organisation. Memorise all the theories. You get marks for theories. So you can just shove in a Maslow's need or whatever when you want.

Good luck! x
