    Present Perfect

    Is this sentence grammatically correct?

    "I have been graduated since 2 years"

    No. "I graduated two years ago."

    Welcome to the forum, SufiMan.

    The default font size is adequate for most purposes.

    The first thing to remember is that a sentence needs a final punctuation mark to be grammatically correct. In this case, it's full stop (period).

    Re: Present Perfect

    'I have graduated, it was two years ago.'
    Is it grammatically correct?

    Not a teacher.

    Re: Present Perfect

    1. I graduated 2 years ago.
    Is it grammatical correct?

    2. I have been graduated for 2 years so far.
    Is it grammatical correct?

    I deem 2 incorrect, but I am not a teacher.

    Matthew, that is a comma splice.

    Polyester, your first is fine. The second is not OK.
