Try writing your essay out in much shorter bullet points - you don't need to memorise all your sentences exactly, just the key points and then reform the sentences from those points. Split it up into sections of fewer bullet points (eg. all the bullet points from paragraph one) and try and learn each section. Read it through regularly - at least once a day - and write it out again without looking at it if you can straight after you've read it. Read it through again to check, then when you have a spare 10 minutes later that day/the next day try and write it out again without looking. Keep repeating this sort of method - regular reading, trying to write it down (this part is especially important because it tests whether you're actually learning it). Once you feel you've got the bullet points in your head fairly well, find the right length of time when you won't be interrupted and try writing the whole thing out. Good luck

I'd learn it by speakin it out and adding bits on slowly and then repeating.. Say it without looking, then get tested then write it down

Personally I'd write out a couple of sentences over and over until I remember them, then maybe read them aloud. And repeat this for the rest of the essay. It may take a while, but hopefully it'll be effective

For me the only way that works is reading one sentence, saying it aloud without looking, then reading another sentance, doing the same thing, then add it in to the first sentence, etc. It takes a long time but I found it worked the best

I memorise case studies/diagram by using the Feynman's technique. That involves looking at a page and trying to memorise it and then writing it down onto a notepad. Google it if you want some more information. The best thing about it is that it literally photocopies stuff into your mind. Another way to memorise it is to summarise each paragraph and try and fit it into a post-it note! Note the main ideas! Hope I helped :-)
