I want to say that I did something in a certain way and when I tried to do that with another method it didn't work. I wrote:

So I tried the same in this other method and it didn't work more than in my first attempt.

Is the sentence correct? Is the position of 'more' correct?

  • Normally (and idiomatically), one would say it worked less to avoid confusion between (didn't work) more and didn't (work more).

I wouldn't use more. better or worse would be better, since you are referring to results, not quantity.

Also as well as can be used.

You could say:

I tried juggling four eggs standing on both feet. Then I tried the same standing on one foot.

Then you could say:

I tried the same in this other method and it didn't work any better than my first attempt.
I tried the same in this other method and it didn't work as well as my first attempt.
