    credit

    Dear teachers,
    The following sentence is from my textbook:

    This course gives three credit points.
    Could you please explain why we need the word 'points' here since we have the word 'credit'. Is 'points' here a mistake? It is correct to say ' This course gives three credits' and I think the latter is even better.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thank you in advance.

    Jiang

    It's OK, but just 'credits' works too.
