    school grade/institute years

    Is it right to say: "When I was a three-year student..."?

    How to say it about the school? "When I was a three-year schoolboy"?

    If it's country specific, I'm asking about UK.

    I would use a third year/year-three student.

    "Student" is OK for school too, or you could say "third-year pupil".
