For my critical essay in my National 5 English exam I wil be writing about Lord of te Flies (Prose). For essays on this novel that our teacher has got us to write they have been about key themes/characters. Will my quotes and analysis that I have memorized from those essays be sutible for any prose essay question that I could be asked in my exam?

It’s been a while since I’ve done English however critical essays were something I was quite good at. The idea is to memorise a variety of quotes that cover theme, characterisation, setting, turning point, conflict etc and analyse them appropriately RELATING DIRECTLY TO THE QUESTION. So to answer your question, I would learn a few more that cover the topics above and when it comes to analysis, memorising it is ok but in the exam your going to have to adapt it slightly depending on the question. And answering the question is the most important thing! Good luck in your exam.

So, like Joker62 said, try to memorise a wide range of quotes that can cover almost any essay question (the main ones are: Turning Point, Character, Theme, Conflict and Relationship), so I would recommend memorising ~6 quotes from different places in the book ranging from the beginning of the text to the end. The best way to find out if you can make your quotes work with any question is just to write some essays - do some past paper essay questions (go for the hard ones which you've not done before) or even ask your teacher for a few questions, if you've written a few essays and had no problem with bending your quotes to fit the question you are probably ready for the exam.
