HELP! GCSE English Literature — essay types

I was wondering if someone could detail how the different literature essays for different texts are meant to vary from each other?

When reading Grade 9 essays, I realised that while the Shakespeare essays focused on the analysis of 3-5 quotes and lots of language techniques, the others don’t.
Grade 9 essays for Jekyll & Hyde (19th century novel) seem to focus more on the story and barely have linguistic analysis.

For Paper 2 An Inspector Calls (Modern Text), it seems to be a mix where grade 9 essays will zoom into the quotes but won’t expand too much on the effect.

We never made any distinctions between essay structures for these texts in class, so could someone clarify if I’ve got something incredibly wrong??
