    Just keep writing them out, over and over again. It's the only way really. Also try using flashcards, with the topics/themes on one side and the quotes on the other. Picking quotes that link to many different themes will cut down the amount you need to learn, which should make it easier for you.

    Use Quizlet or Memrise to test yourself on the quotes; you can also use flashcards

    I didn’t revise any quotes until the week before the exam but what I did was that I made an A3 mindmap of different themes and wrote my quotes that relate to the themes and analysed them etc. And then I recited the quotes out loud and the analysis of it. After I was confident that I can remember the quotes I’d go to my sister and basically recite them to her even tho she didn’t care like a speech.

    Although Flashcards could possibly help or like card sorting games (eg. you could make the quotes and then the analysis and then mix them up and then try to match the quote with the analysis).

    Don't put all your eggs into one basket, but, have a look at prior exam papers and try to gauge what character/topic they're gonna throw your way next.

    For example, I learnt an extra 5 quotes for Mr Birling for my An Inspector Calls exam 2 and a half-ish years ago because he hadn't come up in like 4 years, and, lo and behold, he popped up on my paper. like I said though, don't be like "oh, (insert blank character/topic) hasn't popped up in a while so I'll only revise that" cos' the exam board might pre-empty you and throw a curve-ball, but, it's worth a shot.
