    pass the deadline

    Is it correct to say/write "it is Feb.8th today, 3 days pass the deadline" if the deadline was on Feb.5th?

    Thanks

    No, it's three days past the deadline.

    "Pass" is a verb and a noun. You need the adjective "past".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You need to capitalize the I in "It" and put a space between "Feb." and the dates.
