I'm now just beginning to realize that I only compared the structure in the poetry exam yesterday Does it really matter that much if you don't comment on language/form?

if I am being completely honest then it probably does matter to some extent. however, I guess it depends on the quality of your analysis on structure. I know that my English teacher always goes on about making sure that themes, language, tone, structure and form is always analysed. but I guess it depends on the overall quality of you essay.
I am sure that you will do really well though, tbh some people forget to analyse structure. since you have analysed structure it shows that you have good analytical skills.

The mark scheme only specifies the analysis or structure/form/language as one of the elements of which there are six in the comparison question so it shouldn't be a problem.
Also i just took a look at the mark scheme and it states Language and/or Structure and/or Form meaning that you don't need to include all of them. In fact structure is much more "insightful and exploratory" which the mark scheme demands so I think you will get high marks for this band.
No sweat as most the marks in this question come for comparison techniques anyway!
Hope this helps

the mark scheme says language and OR structure, so you can still get top band if your structure analysis was good

Yeah lots of students do only lang and no structure and do fine. In poetry, the examiners are looking more for the comparison of themes and poems, so if you analysed the structure well you can still get a high grade
