Any ideas on what the question will be? A theme or character? I’m stuck on what to look at specifically and am stressing about it with time running out

Just make sure you know the text as well as you can as you can't really guess what the question will be.
Make sure you have quotes and ideas for each main character (Macbeth, LM, maybe witches, maybe Banquo/Duncan) and theme (e.g. ambition, morality, power, guilt)
Don't know what exam board you're doing but I'm on AQA. Last year on AQA it was about Macbeth and Banquo, 2017 it was ambition, so perhaps this year it will be a theme...?
On AQA you get an extract (don't know about other exam boards) so you can root your answer in that.
And don't stress, you'll do fine

I personally think Kingship is a strong contender

Although learning material is the foremost priority, I believe the exam question could be on Lady Macbeth and/or masculinity

I’m doing AQA too. Would you say getting an overview of the characters with maybe 5 quotes for each theme is a good idea? My school messed up teaching us the course so no one really knows how to revise it. Are you doing your exam this year?

Yes. Around 5-7 quotes per character should be fine; if your aiming for a 7/8/9 perhaps having pre-planned analysis for each quote will help you in the exam (I know it definitely helped me).

If you feel like your running out of time in terms of revision, Banquo is less likely to come up as this character was assessed last year. Other characters, including Macbeth can still be given.
