      whatever your texts may be make sure you draw comparisons, that's what you get marks for. use handy linking phrases such as similarly, likewise, this can be mirrored in etc good luck

      1. Know the key moments in your text and how they relate to the mode of comparison

      2. Draw clear points of comparison between the texts.

      3. Use discourse markers to clearly show you are comparing (e.g. whereas, while in..., however, similarly, in contrast...)

      Essays of a very high standard will contain a thesis statement or a main argument and will not be a series of differences/similarities.
