    Sure, you can say he graduated first in his class or at the top of his class.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Dux - although it might not be as well-known as I thought before checking below:

    Wikipedia:
    Education


    • In schools in Scotland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Iceland, Dux is a modern title given to the top student in academic and sporting achievement (Dux Litterarum and Dux Ludorum respectively) in each graduating year. In this usage, Dux is similar to the American concept of a valedictorian.

    Re: questions about situation

    The single word is "validictorian" but I personally associate that much more strongly with high school than university. I've never heard the "Dux" term but I like it and wish we had it here.
