Student or Learner
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.
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.
