The structure I am using (use as a starting point i dont get the best grades);
USE LINGUISTICS TO EVIDENCE AND LINK TO THEME WHERE U CAN

MODE - PARAGRAPH 1
AUDIENCE - 2
PURPOSE - 3

GENRE + AUDIENCE = 4

AFFORDANCES AND CONSTRAINTS - A LEVEL 5TH PARA

OPTIONAL PHONOLOGY / SPOKE DISCOURSE / GRAPHOLOGICAL ELEMENTS as not all texts have these

SENTENCE LEVEL - literary techniques e.g. personification, metaphor, different sentence types etc... 6th para
word level - premodifiers/dynamic/modal verbs etc etc etc 7th para

conclusion - although exam board suggest you dont necessarily need this to get top grades but helps bring points together
