Gcse in 1 month, aqa poetry power and conflict essay structure help me!!

When comparing two poems, can someone tell me a really good structure to use? I have watched Mr salles he recommends something called FOTTE (form, opening, 2 techniques, then comment on the ending) does anyone have any other good essay structures for poetry!!??

*If you do please reply in detail!

we have an aqa principle examiner at my school
and i recommend a better approach
an introduction
3 main paragraphs (if joint) or 6 seperate paragraphs
-this is easy if u prepare a plan for possible answers
-here is a web that shows this process

then a summary/conclusion
i left mine as a sentence and still scored a 22/30 in my mock
hope this helps

thank you, but don’t you need to include comments on structure and form to be considered in the top bands?
