Hi,

I would like to ask my friends about the the assessment scheme of a course. Is it grammatical to say ""Did the presentation carry a great portion of marks"?

Thank you!

The grammar is fine, but I don't know what you are asking. Are you asking if they thought the presentation was worthwhile, what sort of "grade" they would give to the presentation?

Thanks.
Let me try to explain it in greater details.

Sometimes, a presentation can contribute up to 60% of the final grade. But sometimes it can just be as low as 10%. So, I was trying to ask whether the presentation contributes so heavily to final grade or not. However, I do not know how to express my question in idiomatic English...

OK, so I understand the presentation is being made by a student.

I would ask how much the presentation contributed to the final grade. Or how much weight it carried.
