# Assembling FE tensors using different quadrature degrees

Assume we have few terms contributing to element tensor and each requires different quadrature degree to be integrated exactly. Does it generally worth using different quadrature degrees for each term or should one use the single one with highest degree for all terms?

I would guess that for sufficiently large $N$ (number degrees of freedom) it does not matter as solver cost being $O(N^\alpha)$ with $\alpha>1$ beats assembler cost $O(N)$.
