    "degree of accuracy" or "level of accuracy"?

    Hi,
    Which is the natural and native way, "degree of accuracy" or "level of accuracy" and why?

    Many thanks
    Newbie.

    This will entirely depend on the context in which each is used.

    I'm sorry - I had to go to hospital and was therefore not in English language mode.

    Degree = the amount, level, or extent to which something happens or is present

    To achieve any degree of accuracy the vocabulary which can be recognised is very small.

    The diagnosis may be made with a high degree of accuracy from the clinical appearance of the lesions

    Level = a position or stage on a scale of quantity, extent, rank, or quality

    To maintain the high level of accuracy required, a video of the uses of accident data may prove to be valuable.

    make a measurement within the usual range of the instrument to an appropriate level of accuracy
