Le subjonctif passé

This was a very interesting lesson to me that appeared in my dashboard but I have always believed that in daily life the subjonctif passé would not be used. Is this a question of educational level or are there simpler ways to express the same sentiments?

Le subjonctif passé is used also in everyday spoken French. It is employed in place of the subjonctif présent if the emphasis is on the fact that one action ended before the other one started.
