They seem to be looking for contextual knowledge rather quotes?
"As in previous series, this was by far the most popular option, attracting an entry of 2,109 candidates. With such a large entry, there was inevitably a wide range of standard, ranging from outstanding to very weak.
Generally speaking, the quality of the answers to Q1(a) was lower than for Q1(b). While strong responses focused closely on the reasons for the Nazis’ rise to power between October 1929 and 30 January 1933, some weak answers concentrated almost entirely on the period prior to the onset of the depression in October 1929. There were many good responses to Q1(b). However, a significant number of candidates went beyond the dates of the question, discussing Nazi racial policies in the period 1940–45. Another common shortcoming was to omit significant events such as the Nuremberg Laws (1935) or the impact of Crystal Night (1938) on the Jews in Germany. Many otherwise good responses made no reference to the creation of the Reich Central Office for Jewish emigration in January 1939.
While there were many good or very good answers to Q2(a), a minority of responses showed significant weaknesses in source technique. In particular, a number of answers completely ignored the content of the source in assessing its utility. Candidates must systematically evaluate the utility of the source by focusing on its content, date, author, mode, motive, audience and tone. Many answers did not focus on the specific wording of the question and considered the utility of the source only in terms of the “Night of the Long Knives” on 30 June 1934. Many good responses did not achieve maximum marks because they were unable to offer any relevant contextual knowledge.
In Q2(b) candidates were presented with the proposition that the “Night of the Long Knives” was the most important factor in the creation of the Nazi dictatorship between 30 January 1933 and 2 August 1934. This question produced some outstanding responses but also some weak answers which relied heavily or exclusively on the information contained in the sources. Other responses did not fully exploit all the evidence in Source 3 to discuss the proposition. A small minority of candidates failed to do themselves justice because they failed to refer to all three sources."
Hellloo after an appauling paper is As ( D in one paper and a B in another ) I have decided to repeat. In A2 the use of quotes is compulsory but in As would it help with marks for knowledge or is it just wasting my time? I am on the CCEA board (northern ireland ) thanks ScienceNerd123
The best way to pass it with good marks is to learn as much as you can, keep things in context. Its not just about ticking boxes, the more you know about the subject, the more stuff you can write about within the context of the question. I was lucky enough I had a massive interest in the subject. I watched World at War, very old but very good documentary series. Anything that was relevant to the exams, I looked up the newest information to make sure it wasn't too outdated.

I see what you are trying to say here, but it actually is in fact all about ticking boxes (thus the existence of a marking scheme), and it is how to tick the box in terms of getting an A grade. It isn't about knowing lots about the subject, although the more you do know will help you, it's about knowing what you know well in terms of analysis.
