With so much content to learn closed-book, it is hard to revise this late into GCSEs. All I can recommend is read over chapter/scene summaries online for your novels/plays (since it’s on the GCSE list, you’re bound to find a few good ones at least) and pick out a quote bank that can be used across a range of topics. It’s quicker and easier than reading over the material over and over, not to mention that the older works are difficult as heck to read.

To be honest, it’s harder for poems - I did the new 9-1 last year and I didn’t even answer the poetry question (I wouldn’t recommend doing that!!). Think of some generic questions they may ask (sadness, war, family, etc) and for each topic write down the poems that would be relevant. For each poem, pick out a couple of strong quotes that could be applied to several different topics.
