It's been a while since you posted and nobody's replied yet...maybe you should check out MarkedbyTeachers.com, TSR's sister site. It has the largest library of essays in the UK.
They've got over 181,000+ coursework, essays, homeworks etc.. all written by GCSE, A Level, University and IB students across all topics. You get access either by publishing some of your own work, or paying Â£4.99 for a month's access. Both ways give you unlimited access to all of the essays.
All their documents are submitted to Turnitin anti-plagiarism software, so it can't be misused, and the site's used by hundreds of thousands of UK teachers and students.
Don't try and learn it all. I think if you are doing GCSE then you are allowed 40 words in the exam (only infinitives and past participles of verbs). Make sure you pick words that set off a trigger and will help you to remember the sentence.
However, if you don't want to do that, try recording yourself saying the passage in French, then keep on listening to it.
