    Default ace

    I have learned as follows:
    1. ace (adj.; BrE) - very good
    2. ace (v.; AmE) - do very well in an examination
    What are the equivalents in the other language
    respectively?
    Thank you.

    I don't know a verb in BrE that would have the exact meaning- I'd generally use a phrase, like 'with flying colours', etc.
