for the essay do the quotations count in the word count or are they excluded?

They do!
I had to redo mine a thousand times because of that since my teacher said they didn't so I went over the word limit. Then he foundout they did, so I put them in footnotes, then he decided that there was the chance footnotes did too, so I actually had to rewrite it.
So, yeah, they do!

Did you sue your teacher for teaching you wrong things? You can easily get $60,000 if you sued the school/college/uni.

No, it all worked out ok in the end. And other than that little incident I really like him!

And my mum teaches at the school too, so that could create some awkwardness

haha.

yes, quotes count. unfortunately. so if you have a really long quote, don't quote it whole. Put "beginning couple of words...last couple of words". Or dont put really long quotes, save your words for talking about the text cos chances are the examiner you get wont have the actua book with them so they might not understand what you're talking about if you condense a quote like above.
Footnotes don't count in wordcount but I dont know if you should put quotes in the footnotes. It looks obvious then that you're putting them there because you are over word limit
