I was quite lucky with the questions but I knew these three texts well - I would say that's the key. Oh, and you have to be able to twist questions if they don't fit right
Just relax though, don't get worried about it. Remember if they are hard questions then they are hard for everyone and all that determines your grade is how well you do compared with everyone else.

These are in order of preference, i hope there are good poetry questions.

And for drama I can write about the theme of disillusionment or the deterioration of the relationship between Biff and Willy explaining the theme of success in Death of a Salesman. And for prose I can write about symbolism/evil in Nineteen Eighty-Four. And character conflict/symbolism/evil in the cone gatherers (kinda pointless if I can write about Nineteen Eighty-Four). But I can't write about anything else.
I still just hope the questions are good -- or that I can make up any failure in close reading.

Iain for The Cone Gatherers:
'Minor character of significance in the novel' (Most people choose Roderick, however in pastpapers and set questions in class I chose Peggy: very useful when looking at disintigration of Duror), 'Turning point' (Deer Drive), and 'An introduction with impact' (Makes reader aware of war / contrast with desolate place: Ardmore Forest - the quotes in the intro are easy to learn) are good essays to plan out for The Cone Gatherers.
Try looking over those if you have any time spare (Assuming you haven't overlooked them already), they're always good to know.
I suggest reading questions, finding the one you can make the most points about, then use plans you should have in your head (5 or so words under appropriate headings), and write them down on paper- spending no longer than about 5 minutes on this.
Also: When writing about 'Death of a Salesman' never forget to mention the technique employed by Miller: 'Flashback' - it plays such an important role in the play.
