I have my first history exam as a uni student tomorrow. I’m expected to write 3 essays in 3 hours. How many words should each essay be and do I have to reference in exam essays?

You'll need to clearly identify where you are using someone else's work or comments, but you aren't going to be expected to write a full APA style bibliography etc.

As for how much to write, how long is a piece of string? Write as much as you need to answer the question, and not a single word more

Assuming the marks for each essay is the same, you'll probably have an hour to plan and write each essay, so figure out how much you can write out in that time and make sure it is complete i.e. has a coherent argument with introduction and conclusion and so on, and doesn't just ramble on then stop because you ran out of time...
