    Sounds intresting were doing the crusade and the feudal society that same as at int 2 so it is pretty boring tbh. 5 essays each topic is a nightmare i was going to risk only learning 3 per topic but might need to change that haha. Same i take it everyone does the wars of indepence?

    also doing crusades and feudal society, i quite like it, apart from wars of independence, they are tediously boring but easy marks, also have the extended response so less pressure for the final! ;D

    its not about the quotes at all; its about argument. using quotes helps with this, but the examiner will want to see your own argument too, so maybe 2-3 quotes?

    I've been getting 16-18's since my prelim without ever using a quote, and we were never told to. Is this wrong? Should I be looking for quotes?

    My teacher always says to put quotes in and when we do we get higher grades, but it's probably just him.

    My teacher told me that quotes are not necessary and intact if you get them wrong it can backfire on you.

    I'm risking it and memorising essays. The only essay I feel that will definitely appear is the Labour Government Reforms for the British topic. What is everyone else predicting?

    I did it for my last NAB in class so it's still fresh in my mind. My extended essay appeared last year so I can't rely on that for Germany. :emo:

    German Nationalism 1815-1850, I had the essay for homework, a NAB and in the prelim so I thought this would be an essay I could get a good mark for.
    However I have no idea what to memorise for Germany...
