Is 6% of a grade negligible?

Hi guys

One of my classes we get a assignment that's 6% of our grade.

Is that almost negligible then? (Like how many midterms are)

:? It's 6% more than negligible.

In a class with a tight curve, 6% could be the difference between a good grade and below median.

Relax dude. I can diagnose you with needing to relax based on the front page of this forum.

I think you unfortunately know the answer to your own question. Stop missing and/or completely blowing off graded assignments.
