I'm doing A level english now and did AQA at GCSE. My text wasn't Christmas Carol but I would say find summaries online as well as any important quotes by theme if you haven't found quotes yourself. Sparknotes and schmoop should have this sort of information since I use them even now and Christmas Carol is a popular text

I think if you put your head into it, you should be fine. Remember though, find the most important quotes which you can use for multiple themes - it will help you in revising quotes since you can have less quotes but good ones in the sense you have can use it for a number of different essays

spark notes is very good: https://www.sparknotes.com/lit/christmascarol/
or quizlet flashcards of quotes - you could write some down.
even some vidoes on tiktok have key quotes to use!

sorry shoulda made that clearer. Sparknotes is especially helpful for this. look at the plot summaries, (https://www.sparknotes.com/lit/christmascarol), and the quotes (https://www.sparknotes.com/lit/christmascarol/#quotes) which are grouped by themes, characters and each section of the book. Also the quotes have analysis as well. Compile a document where you extract information from the quotes, so the most important words/phrases of each quote, then a brief explanation of its significance. Prioritise the themes and characters sections. Should only take c. 1h

Also, just a tip for the exam, if there are quotes that are very likely to be used, but you haven't really got round to memorising them, memorise them right before you enter the exam hall, so its in ur short term memory, then write them all down on the back of the exam script as soon as you enter, as the back page does not get scanned.
