    Question 20% of the score devoted to class attendance?

    Hi all,
    Is this sentence right in school contexts? "20% of the final class score is to be devoted to class attendance."

    Any other verbs instead of 'devoted' please?




    Thanks!

    I don't understand what this is about, but you could consider assigned, allocated or allotted.

    For example:

    Final class mark/score/grade is based on:

    Course work - 30%
    Final Examination: 40%
    Extended Essay: 10%
    Class Attendance: 20%

    A 100% attendance record would get the full 20% of the final marks, One percentage point might be lost for every 2% fall in the attendance record.

    Thank you so much dear Rover_KE.
    Besides, is there any informal verb used in everyday English, meaning the same as the verbs you have given me?

    I'd write "20% of the final score is for attendance and participation."

    Meaning attending is not enough, they also have to talk...

    How about account for?

    Attendance accounts for up to 20% of the final score
