Yes I try to answer each question linked to one of these themes. I got most of the content from this video:

I’ve got one for the relationship between Macbeth and Lady Macbeth.
“Give me the daggers. The sleeping and the dead are but as pictures. ‘Tis the eye of childhood that fears a painted devil.”
- this is a really effective yet not frequently used quotation that will make you stand out to examiners.
Here, Lady Macbeth attempts to emasculate her husband by implying that he is too childish and cowardly to return to the murder scene and replace the daggers there. She begins by commanding him to give her the daggers- or metaphorically hand over the role of leadership- before suggesting that there’s no difference in appearance between dead and sleeping people. Due to her lack of remorse, guilt or respect for those Macbeth has murdered, the audience begins to see her ruthless character. But she also suggests that Macbeth is cowardly by comparing his ‘fears’ to a child’s, which shows the power dynamic in their relationship

Basically the advice I’d give you is to study quotations per character or theme, which you can find on sites like spark notes and cliffs note, etc. And just cram it all until Tuesday (lol Im tryna do the same thing)
You’ll find plenty on Lady Macbeth for eg in Act 1 Scene 5, with her whole soliloquy about becoming masculine. It’s highly likely they’ll ask u at least something on her or her relationship w/Macbeth.
As for Jekyll and Hyde, there’s heaps of stuff in the last chapter (I think it’s chapter 9 or 10) when Jekyll reveals all the stuff about how he became Hyde and basically “all is explained”. You’ll find heaps of quotes in this chapter about how Hyde is presented as evil, the duality of man and the struggle for dominance between Jekyll and Hyde.
