    "I finished my 10th standard in secondary school"

    First of all, sorry for my bad English.
    This is the first time I ask question on forum.

    I encounter this sentence: " I finished my 10th standard in VelleyanChettiar Higher secondary school ". it is used when a man introduce himself.
    I'm confused its meaning. Does it mean that he completed 10 grades at the secondary school ? Please help me to explain.

    Thank you

    Welcome to the forum, Tracy.

    He probably meant he had completed ten years of education – the last of them at the school named.

    He is unlikely to have spent ten years at a secondary school.
