    Don't worry, you'll be okay As long as you properly analysed the similarities, you can still get a high grade. You don't have to analyse both similarities and differences.

    Is this for poetry?

    Yes it is. Another question i didn't talk about structure to support my points for the unseen only language. is that a problem aswell?

    Not a problem, especially for unseen as examiners won't be looking for indepth analysis for a poem you've never seen before, just valid points backed up with quotes. As long as you did language or structure you'll be fine.

    dont worry - its not necessary to talk about differences within the poems to get really high grades. I only talked about similarities too - my teacher told me i could mention differences if it was important but not to worry if i didnt
    which poems did you decide to analyse?
