    I'm absolutley screwed for this exam anyway but I'd like to know the extent of how they mark quotes. Like, if I used 1-3 (which is what I'll likely remember, no use trying to remember loads and freaking out in the exam room over it) would the marker be like 'wtf'?

    I'm an average student when it comes to my Literature course. I struggle at a university level. Should never have picked it...... But I haven't done an essay since school!
