Do we have to quote The Merchant's Tale in Middle English (OCR A-level)?

It's driving me insane trying to memorise quotes in a language that looks half incomprehensible so I was wondering if we really HAVE to quote in middle English. If it'll deduct marks to write in modern English I'll stick with direct quotations.

Hey! I think you do have to write the quotes in Middle English. I don't think it will deduct marks but as long as you know what you're talking about, you'll be okay <3

Have you considered asking your teacher?
