Can I use "cuts for" in place of "could be considered as"? I'm not sure if "cuts for" is even a usage in English but I heard something similar... as in making a cut for a placement test... or something.
I was wondering if "Where are you going? where have you been?" by Joyce Carol Oates cuts for
Your answers are much appreciated, as always.
Re: cut for
You can say "counts as" informally. Could that be what you heard?
Hey, does the lettuce and tomato on my hamburuger count as a salad?
Making the cut means that there is a cut-off score, and you are above the required score. Say you took a test, and you have to score an 85 out of 100 to be allowed to take the next level class. If you scored an 86, you made the cut.
However, your usage won't work.
Re: cut for
There is an informal idiom "to cut it", meaning "to meet the standard/make the grade/be sufficient". 'His performance wasn't bad, but he didn't really cut it for me alongside the other performers'.. Your quote could have a typo in it (omitting the it):
