    If you are talking about the class, which you are in your question, in.

    If you are talking about the level of your command of the language, at.

    ps. I note that you are Indian, working in India. You may well find that some of the answers you receive in this forum, coming from speakers of BrE, AmE, AusE, etc dialects do not reflect the usage in your dialect. Indian English is not inferior to other dialects, and it is not 'wrong', but it is different. We can't apply the 'rules' of one dialect to another.
