Certificates, Diplomas, Licenses, CVs / Brazilian academic transcript
Portuguese term or phrase: OC
The transcript has various categories such as nome da disciplina, nota, OC, creditos, etc.
It seems that OC refers to the results, but the results here are only things like 'aprovado por media, reprovado por falta, etc.
What does OC stand for?
