I agree with DWx, speed is going to be paramount (that's why I always hated that style of sparring). Another issue to consider is that the technique may not have to be "clean" to get a point. If you parry a punch or backfist well enough to lighten the blow, but it still grazes you, it may still count as a point. So be sure your blocks and movements are good enough to keep you from getting grazed.

Agree with what others have said about speed.

I never did well in point sparring (lack of speed and too much thinking), but one other thing I have noticed with people who do well in point sparring is that they eliminate any "tells". Since speed is king, any signals of an attack will give a decent opponent a chance to defend and counter. This also applies to continuous sparring but is even more important in point sparring.
