    Someone please give tips on how to structure the perfect answer and how to get good marks for it because I always drop down by a grade just because of this question.

    Our school does a 'zig zag' structure where you do a PEED paragraph (point evidence explain develop) for source 3, then another for source 1/2, then back to source 3, next paragraph source 1/2 and so on.. Therefore in total you should have around 6 'paragraphs', alternating for each source. That way you're proving that you can compare texts, not just write a few points for each one. They're checking you can pick out relevant language similarities/differences. Some ideas to analyse could be similes, metaphors, personification, alliteration, lists, repetition, hyperbole, onomatopoeia, facts/statistics etc. Hope this helps?!
