Are you doing Eduqas or OCR?

If it's Eduqas...
For language, I've made a set of flashcards on Quizlet covering all the vocab and its principal parts. You've not got time to learn it all, so comb through and star all the words you struggle on, then go through this smaller amount on the Learn Mode. After that, I'd use the Test mode to check you've learnt all the ones you chose to look at (try and prune this down to around 100 words), and if you want spend a short time on the Match and Gravity modes at the end. Should take a couple of hours; the Language exam is fortunately quite easy if you know most of the vocab as you can deduce words you don't know from the context. Don't worry too much about the "English into Latin" or "Identify Grammar" section choice at the end - with our remaining time, not worth worrying about it as it's only worth 10% of the paper.

For literature, jot down everything you know off the top of your head for each of the poems. Then read through the poems in English, and write down summaries based off your reading - especially noting any points you didn't get. Then read through the Latin, and try and translate as much as you can having read the English. This should jog your memory and apply it in a plethora of ways. Should take 3 hours tops.

Lastly, for Civilisation, there are 5 topics for your theme (I did Entertainment so Baths, Dinner Parties, Theatre, Ampitheatre and Recitations) - I would make a mindmap on each, based off your notes. Give yourself no more than 45 minutes for each, then move on. Come back and add stuff if you've got extra time - the Cambridge Latin Course sections on each of the topics cover lots of relevant information with some nice examples; dig those out if your notes aren't up to scratch.

Good luck!

Yeah, some of the questions were a bit of a stretch to be honest, notably the last two. The question where you had to give 3 Roman opinions on the animals' use in the games, and the use of dinner parties by the host and guests, were both difficult questions that I had to stretch my knowledge to cover.
Found it relatively easy overall, the hardest for me was Literature but that was the third exam that day.
