When I was doing the same paper I found it very important to know the content /story behind the case rather than cramming the names... Because when u know the content of the case u can simply replace the names with for example AvsB.

Instead of cramming make personal notes for the cases based on your individual understanding . Would be very helpful to memorize them in this way.

when i were appeared in F4 i were also have same tension but in the last month which you can say golden moth or month of decision.i were just prepare this paper between F6 to F4 exams holidays which were 6 days and one major thing is i were very attentive in class i am not an regular learner and not good in home assignment but i always be attentive during lecture and enjoy every case and when i were going through whole case studies then those all were revising in my mind and one important thing i want to share is during first 15 minutes of paper you can read question in 5 minutes and use that remaining 10 minutes to think hard and write case law's names on relevant questions if you just remember the scenario not the name then give it name as A and B.simple is that you should convey examiner that you have some knowledge similarly, i got 74% marks and i believe you can also do it in similar way :)

I was also told when sitting the exam to either explain the case or use the case name e.g. Carlill v Carbolic Smoke Ball Company its not necessary to do both. I agree it is easier to remember the content of the cases like stories as the cases are normally quite unusual/funny so.
