Are you doing the Eduqas poetry anthology? I found youtube videos really helpful, and also if you're not a visual leaner then you can search the student room for the specific poem you want and a pdf analysis will appear. Then convert this information onto small flash cars with questions on. For example, "what does the structure of the pen the manhunt suggest?"

If you're on AQA, I 100% recommend Mr Bruff. His videos suggest which poems to compare to which and he gives you an in depth analysis of each one. It's a brill idea to annotate if you haven't already. I'd say that if you read one or two poems every night that will help you remember them. Also maybe try blurting? Idk if you've heard of it but it's just getting your ideas onto a piece of paper and just writing what you know. If you can blurt the poems and key points you'd make about them, you'll be fine. If you're struggling to remember certain important lines, I'd recommend using something like memrise to help you remember the quotes. I've seen various sets for power and conflict poetry that really helped.

Good luck in your english lit, I'm sure you'll do brill
