The best advice I can give is to make character profiles and know the order of events as best you can. Make up lists of words that you'll use frequently and try to find alternatives that are better and impress the examiners

For revision
make notes on each character, theme and symbol.
for each one, write down key characteristics/features/interpretations/changes/etc. (along with 1 or 2 supporting quotes and maybe analysis) of that character/theme/symbol
to get ideas, use your class notes and look online, perhaps use a revision guide

In the exam, use PEA paragraphs
P - say a point that answers the question (related to characters, themes, plot, symbols), don't state a technique
E - quote evidence (try and embed quotes)
A - discuss the techniques/form/structure used. have alternative interpretations and back up your interpretation with evidence from a different part of the text if possible. include contextual details if the paper requires
