I did exactly the same for mine. Split it into small paragraphs, and count how many nights you have to learn it. For me, it was 9 paragraphs over 4 nights. Take one night off (this left three) and divide the paragraphs over the nights - i concentrated on 3 paragraphs a night. The last night is for going over it all. as for actually learning it, i remembered all of mine by writing each paragraph out, then copying it, then writing without looking. Then at the end of each night, try to recite it from the beginning up to where you've learned. This might not be helpful to you, but it was really useful for me so its worth a go :)

Just keep writing it out and it eventually gets stuck in your head. Also say it out loud to yourself a lot and to other people as it also helps you to hear it.

Read one line aloud, cover it and read it aloud and then continue for each sentence. For every few sentences, write down from memory what you have learnt so you don't forget it.Keep going until you have memorised the whole piece. Write out the whole piece several times to make sure that you have memorised all of it. I have done this for every single one of my controlled assessments. It really works!

memorise a paragraph at a time by blocking out a few words (have a clean copy aswell) and trying to remember that, then block out a few more, and a few more, then get out some colours and try to write it with no prompt words giving each sentence a unique colour

it works for me but might not for you

good luck **
