From what I understand about these exams, you need the basic skills of literary analysis--the ability to read, think, and write.  Use every opportunity your teachers give you to improve on these skills.  Make sure you're reading challenging work and make sure you're writing effectively and taking your teachers' comments and criticisms seriously.  In short, you need to do what anyone who wants to get better at something must do--practice. Wish I had some kind of magic formula to offer, but no such luck.

Reading, writing, and higher order thinking are all elements that you need to be developing. Writing is thinking at a higher level, and this helps make the reading better developed. In addition, make sure you take every opportunity to participate in the class discussion. Ask question and provide your own input. This gives you an opportunity to get response to your thinking processes before the exams.
