How do I structure my time for the essay?

Remember you have only 90 minutes to get through the ELAT, and structure accordingly. Be familiar with your strengths beforehand: are you more comfortable analysing prose or poetry? Spending too long making a decision on your choice of analysis can cost you valuable time. Read through all of the material once; make a swift decision as to which two you can compare. If you see a writer you've studied before in class, pick that. This means you are already familiar with their style and techniques and will be able to discuss it well.

I would advise that you pick two texts rather than three so as not to spread yourself too thinly over the time given. Make a brief plan in which you compare and contrast the central themes from the two writers in each paragraph. Once you've got a basic plan, write swiftly, and try to leave some time for drafting your conclusion at the end. You want to leave the examiners with a good final impression!
