^this was the language discussion which has turned into lit - you might get faster replies on here.

As far as I'm aware it usually states whether to quote or not e.g with reference to the Latin text? Best of luck

I took this exam last year, basically, it will pretty much tell you when to quote Latin... And when you do, it needs to be specific; don't quote a whole sentence, it needs to be the exact verb or noun you're analysing the 'style' or 'content' for.
In the final 10 mark essay (I think?) you don't necessarily need to quote Latin, you just need to be specific about which poem and exactly what Ovid's argument is.
Watch out for how much time you spend on each question, make sure you split it 50/50 prose and poetry. Also, look online for commentaries and get your teachers to look for extra practice questions for you! Good Luck!
