    omit as in passive

    Hi,

    1. The regime was inevitably labelled as 'communist'.

    2. Michael was considered as an excellent teacher.

    3. She is known as a teacher.

    I would like to know if the adverb 'as' is necessary.

    Thanks.

    It's not necessary in 1 and 2, but it is in 3.

    In general, when does 'as' become necessary??

    I wish I had better English, but I work hard to improve it. I'm studying for IGCSE, so I'm only interested in BrE.
