Has anyone got any good tips to remember the difference between the two? I've got a couple of English exams soon and want to be at the top of my game for them.

Simile uses the word 'like' or 'as'. Metaphor is a direct comparison.

Similie always reminds of the word smile so I think "Similie is like a smile". Which is a similie. Then just think, metaphor is not a similie, so it must be the other one i'm thinking of.

Metaphor=literal "you are a star"

Simile=comparing, using like or as, "like a bat out of hell"

sorry, i've got no tricks to remember them.
