Daunting as the requirements of this examination might seem when you consider the range and scope of it, your success will largely depend upon how successfully you can analyse, compare and discuss unseen texts form the three major literary genres of poetry, drama and prose. You will also need to read as widely as you can and begin doing so as soon as possible, all the time making links and connections about different types of love in terms of genres, content, attitudes, treatment, context, eras, gender, age, courtship, marriage, grief and any other aspect of love you discover. The more you read the more you will understand about love in all its guises as it has been used as a theme in literature.  As a result, the deeper, more relevant and more satisfying your references to your wide reading will be to the unseen texts presented to you, in what is, without doubt, one of the most demanding examinations you will have taken so far.
