    Dear teachers,

    I have two questions:

    Can "full credit" mean "full mark"? I ask so because there is a sentence in my textbook:

    The professor decided to give him full credit for the exam.

    I don't understand "full credit" here. Suppose the credit for a course is 3. As far as I understand once I pass an exam I get 3 credit. Could you please kindly explain under what circumstances do I get like 1 or 2 credits?

    Could you please explain the differences between "strike of luck" and ""stroke of luck"? I found the following in the dictionary:

    1. Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a strike of luck.
    2. It was a stroke of luck that I found you here.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
    Thank you in advance.

    Re: credit

    #1 In the context you give, I think "credit" here probably means public acknowledgement or praise given for achievement or quality, not "credits" as in marks/grades.

    #2 "strike of luck" is wrong. A stroke of luck, always.
