Can somebody list all the ways for sophistication, I still feel a lil weak on that part of the essay


It’s nearly impossible to nail down exactly what you need to do to earn the Sophistication point. It will be awarded sparingly and reserved for the essays that demonstrate the most in-depth understanding of the rhetorical situation surrounding the text. At this point, I wouldn’t stress about getting this point (focus on the other 5 points since they’re easier to earn). However, if you feel confident in the other 5 points and want to look further, check out these slides (and replay if you want). In the slides, you’ll see CollegeBoard’s breakdown of how to earn this point and Fiveable’s (Brandon’s) recommendations as you try to earn it.
