# IOC I got a 6, is it possible to get 6/7 overall?

## Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I did my oral commentary (the formal one that's taped) and I don't think I did too well

I got a 6 on my first oral.

Each oral is worth 15% of the final grade and then the 2 word Litt. papers are also 15% each. I'm wondering, is it possible for me to get a 6/7 (predicted mark), if I do well on the world Litts?

Thanks

As long as you work hard and get solid grades on your two world lits, and do well on Paper 1 and 2, there's no reason why you shouldn't get a 6 or 7.

Because if two orals are 15% each, and two WLs are also 15% each, then that would leave 40% for the final exam, and I am 99.9% certain that that is not what the breakdown is.
