seriously i have no idea what qet means by citing sources. I think a simply according to so and so article by so so and person in ur main text should be sufficent. If they require proper citation/footnotes/endnots/in-text citations using turabian, asa, apa, i think that is too much

X2.

Writing out citations simply take too much work. They have better things to test. For a written paper, get your grammar and structure correct first. You're there for QET, not some citation test.

I suppose so too.. Coz its quite weird to put end of text citations in hand-written work (not to say its impossible, but just plain weird)..

Agreed.. It just does not make sense banding a student with better citation but poor grammar and structure higher than a student with better grammar and structure but poorer citation..

Not to say that citation is not important, but I feel that this can be taught.. Not to mention that there are actually many legal ways to cite..

But teaching grammar and structure at University level may require more effort, both on the part of the University as well as the student..

Er..., QET expects you to write something like a response essay with the passage and perhaps your own general knowledge as your sources, not a well-researched and vetted full thesis

So, it is more like expecting you to write a sec sch/gp type of essay

You have to use citation whenever you refer to the source texts, I guess.

So the "in-text" style of citation is definitely a must.. I'm just thinking if we are even expected to write references after the essay? (ie "cut and paste" the references of the source texts)

If you refer to source A

Just write this in your main text, according to the source A or according to the author of source a....
