so you know how on the literature exam you get 3 questions; unseen poetry, anthology poetry, and on whatever book or play you get. so usually on past lit papers i never finish the last question bc i suck at time management and its worth the most marks so i thought this time i'd start from the back. i finished the anthology poetry and last question completely but ended up having no time to even start the unseen poetry question .basically i wanted to know how much of an effect that'll actually have on my final grade, considering the fact i did pretty well on my literature coursework so it could bring it up a bit?

Dependent upon the mark of the unseen poetry itself and the grade boundaries for English lit. How many marks was the unseen poetry? And the anthropology poetry?

unseen poetry is worth 20 marks, the anthology poetry is worth 30, and the novel is worth 40

70 out of 90 is alright but it will set you back if you are specifically aiming for a higher grade. 20 marks may seem a lot to lose but as you said your coursework may bump it up significantly dependent upon the grades you achieved in them.

This isn't a good strategy. You don't accrue marks at a linear rate when answering a question. It should be possible to pick up a quick few marks in five minutes from jotting down some sensible points in note form.
