Technique spotting doesn't impress the examiner. Deep analysis does.

What I'm trying to say is that 'sophisticated' techniques aren't any more credit-worthy than basic ones. You can spot very basic things like how commas and verbs are used and still absolutely smash the essays.

Yeah of course, but for some people it’s easier to spot the techniques and comment on them rather than mire subtle things like verbs and comma usage
