The quizzes are almost pure memorization of obscure details in the novels (with a few exceptions like quotation analyses). The best way to study for that is to take notes on every chapter that is being tested. You can never edit your writing too much so remember to refine your essays as much as possible before submission. The media marks tend to be high, but it’s usually hard to get a great mark on the written assignments. Work hard and you’ll be fine.
